Every single one of us is protected by the Human Rights Act. It helps us hold authorities to account when things go wrong.
After 27 years of fighting for justice, the Hillsborough families used the Human Rights Act to uncover the truth about how their loved ones died.
When 96 people lost their lives in a crush at Hillsborough football ground in 1989, the fans were blamed. The Human Rights Act enabled the families of those who died to tell their loved ones’ stories and to reveal the truth: that mistakes made by the police and others led to their deaths.
When Celia Peachey’s mum Maria was murdered by her violent ex-partner, Celia used the Human Rights Act to hold the police account for their failings. But now the act is under threat – help us save it. Read more here.

On the backdrop of continued cuts and closures, private companies seek to gain even more of a foothold within the NHS.
Continued pay restraint has meant the value of NHS staff salaries has fallen by 14% since 2010. There are now 25,000 nursing and 3,500 midwifery vacancies in NHS England alone.
Theresa May’s demands for yet more austerity in the NHS represent a real risk to the safety of patients and the service. The Government's latest plans for Sustainability and Transformation Plans are in reality just a smokescreen for further cuts and its latest instrument of privatisation.
The NHS is the single greatest achievement of working class people in Britain. We cannot allow it to be undermined and ultimately destroyed. We must march together, sending a clear message to the government; “the NHS will last as long as there are folk with the faith to fight for it.”
No Cuts, Closures & Privatisation
End Pay Restraint for NHS Staff!
For A Fully Funded, Publicly Owned National Health & Social Care.
Our National Health Service is at breaking point.
