Community Led Support: Through a Human Rights Lens

CLS human rights web page 01

The Community Led Support approach is based on a set of rules and principles that underpin the simple ambition to ‘do the right thing’. It helps those of us who need support at any time in our lives to live well and as independently as possible, with purpose and connection.

We work alongside public services which have a legal duty to uphold human rights, including local authorities and NHS services, because of the Human Rights Act. We also work with their community partners and local people, many of whom interact with public services on a regular basis. Whether we are working with duty-bearers or rights-holders, human rights is at the centre of our approach.

These resources explain how Community Led Support is supported through elements of the Human Rights Act.
