A Fight for Human Rights

A Fight for Human Rights

Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust ( SHSC ), in recognition of their commitment to being a human rights-based organisation, are joining others across the world today to mark International Human Rights Day.

SHSC will be hosting three distinguished expert speakers in a conference to talk about their distinct perspectives on human rights and mental health.

We all have Human Rights but people with learning disability and autism, can be unaware of their rights and abused more easily. Sheffield Voices, our learning disability self-advocacy group have made a video to show that people with learning disabilities have a voice and that there are things that need to change because their rights are not being upheld.

Their video, A Fight for Rights, will be featured at the end of the conference.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
