Elevating Human Rights-based Approaches in your Practice

Human Rights are universal, and they are, in principle, universally supported. Disability services and supports are about enabling people’s human rights. If you work with people with disabilities human rights should be fundamental and foundational to your practice.

Elevating Human Rights-based Approaches involves investing time to better understand what is meant by human-centred practice and human rights-based approaches and how you can embed them, consciously and intentionally in what you do.
