Since 2006, PPR has supported marginalised people to assert their human rights in practical ways and make real social and economic change in their communities.

PPR’s approach uses a combination of organising, research, legal work and campaigning to empower excluded groups to make change now on the issues affecting them, and also to build towards lasting structural changes in the decision making processes that are the cause of their exclusion.

The work of PPR’s groups has led to tangible changes on the ground in some of the most disadvantaged areas in Northern Ireland, and has also provided valuable learning on what is required to make change.

The inaugural PPR Tools for Action School was held in 2011, and since then has been attended by a wide range of organisations and individuals interesting in exploring how to apply approach on their own issues.

PPR’s Tools for Action Schools have been attended by representatives from trade unions, community development organisations, charities, universities, development and human rights organisations:

  • Irish Congress of Trade Unions
  • Scottish Human Rights Commission
  • Domestic Workers Action Group (Dublin)
  • Committee on the Administration of Justice
  • Galway Traveller Movement
  • Down Syndrome Ireland
  • Alzheimer’s NI
  • Queen’s University Human Rights Department
  • Save the Children
  • Front Line Defenders
  • Grampian Regional Equality Authority
  • Trócaire
  • UNISON

PPR Schools and workshops can be carried out in house and tailored to suit organisation's requirements.  If you are interested in finding out more about any of PPR's Human Rights Based Training, please contact us for information.
