The Human Rights Act came into force in October 2000. The impact of this historic piece of legislation on public authorities and charities is both fundamental and far-reaching. Increasingly, individuals and organizations are using the Act to challenge decisions made by public authorities. In defending these challenges, public authorities must demonstrate that they have taken human rights into account in their policies, procedures and service delivery. This title helps public authorities comply with human rights legislation in addition to enabling them to demonstrate that compliance. Introducing basic human rights principles, the simple check-list format is designed for non-legal public authority and voluntary sector staff working in areas such as health, housing, education, planning, social services, transport, criminal justice, residential care and equalities. Lawyers - whether employed or in private practice - should also find the analysis of the background and application of the Human Rights Act useful.
