At B-HART we believe that using a human rights-based practice model is the next level from the social valorisation model of providing supports and services to people with disability.
Applying human rights-based approaches means taking responsibility for our attitudes, for our mindsets, and making sure our decision-making is first and foremost informed by the human rights of people with disabilities and all our stakeholders. To do this successfully and sustainably we must consciously and intentionally embed human rights-based approaches across our businesses. It cannot be piecemeal or ad hoc.
To support this transition to a Human Rights-based Practice Model B-HART has developed a unique benchmarking assessment tool, a series of bespoke capacity building workshops and a membership community.
The B-HART accreditation package has three components. All three components have been developed in consultation and collaboration with people with lived experience, interested providers and experienced sector development practitioners.
B-HART comprehensive benchmarking assessment tool helps providers reflect on their current practices and develop a plan for what is needed to integrate human-centred and human rights-based approaches more fully into their organisations. This is underpinned with five core capacity-building workshops designed to develop the attitudes, mindset and skills needed to build the approaches required to engage fully with human rights-based approaches. To maximise the accreditation transition providers undertaking accreditation receive 6 months support, advice and resources from the B-HART team.
