Human Rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world. They are based on core principles like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and autonomy.
Human Rights are relevant to your day-to-day life. They protect your freedom to control your own life, effectively take part in decisions made by public authorities which impact upon your rights and receive fair and equal services from public authorities.
To reflect this, a new statutory body now exists in the UK to ensure that equality, diversity and human rights are promoted and respected; the Equality and Human Rights Commission. This has brought together the 3 previous statutory commissions, namely the Disability Rights Commission, the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Commission for Racial Equality.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in Wales
The Welsh Government is fully committed to ensuring that Welsh interests are represented and that the EHRC is able to operate effectively in Wales reflecting the devolved context. The EHRC Commissioner in Wales is Dr Neil Wooding and the Director for the EHRC in Wales is Kate Bennett.
