Latest from PPR

Frontline staff – care givers, homeless support officers, childcare providers, advice workers, and many more – are launching a Human Rights Monitor of the services provided across the community and voluntary sectors in Northern Ireland. The Monitor, organised by the UNISON Community and Voluntary Branch and supported by PPR, aims to gain a comprehensive picture of frontline services, how they are or are not meeting the needs and fulfilling the rights of the vulnerable, and how the situation is impacting both staff and people accessing the services.

World Mental Health Day, observed on the 10th October every year, presents an opportune moment to consider the United Nations’ current assessment of the core challenges and opportunities for advancing the realisation of the right to mental health for everyone in Northern Ireland and across the globe.

Participation and the Practice of Rights (PPR), in partnership with the Simon Community Northern Ireland, are recruiting a Project Organiser to lead a ground breaking project aiming to challenge the root causes of homelessness using a human rights based approach. The Project Organiser must be highly motivated, committed to social justice and capable of supporting others to advocate for themselves.
