Learning Disability and Human Rights

The British Institute of Human Rights have published a new resource.

A booklet about human rights in learning disability settings. It is aimed at professionals working in the community but is relevant for those working in learning disability services of all kinds. The term ‘practitioner’ is used throughout to include anyone working in learning disability settings (e.g. qualified and unqualified workers). Lots of information in the booklet may also be useful for learning disabled people using services, their family, carers or advocates.

The booklet is available to download below.

BIHR has also produced a range of resources aimed at people using mental health services, see
