Human Rights

Most countries around the world agree that people have Rights -things people are allowed to do and the support they should get to do those things – these rights are called Human Rights. Human Rights also include rights for people with disability these are called Disability Rights.

This page has links and videos about Human Rights and Disability Rights. It is important to understand our rights so that we can ask for the support we need to do the things that all people get a chance to do in our countries.
