Human Rights Day letter

11 December 2017

The National Care Forum were one of over 140 organisations who signed a letter addressed to Theresa May regarding safeguarding human rights.

"Dear Prime Minister,

Today, on Human Rights Day, we celebrate universal human rights. These freedoms, written down after World War II in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, have been brought home through the UKs Human Rights Act and European laws.

We face great constitutional change and uncertainty as your government seeks to navigate taking the UK out of the EU. Now is the time to focus on securing the everyday rights of people across the country. Rather than tampering with our hard-won fundamental freedoms, whether in the Human Rights Act or EU Charter, these legal standards must endure now and post-Brexit. 

We ask you to avoid isolation and division, committing instead to stand firm on universal human rights standards as the foundation of a forward-looking UK."
