HOW WE DO IT
Human rights workshops
Creative Treaty delivers human rights training and well-being workshops sessions in schools, colleges, charities and businesses across the UK. We have successfully worked with students as young as Key Stage 2, and have delivered workshops to corporate businesses, grassroots charities and public sector organisations.
In workshop sessions we connect the role that human rights has to community wellness and individual well-being. As an organisation we believe that human rights’ systems help structure healthy communities, with these healthy communities the foundation that nurture positive wellness in individuals.
Sessions equip participants with knowledge on their human rights, and how these laws and structures positively impact them and their communities.
Workshops are usually divided into two phases, with the first phase examining basic human rights systems and their benefit to community. The second phase focuses on individual wellness and its positive impact on not just ourselves, but also our surroundings - we explore good nutrition, physical and mental well-being and emotional wellness. Creative Treaty recognises the 5 principles of wellness: physical, emotional, mental, environmental and social.
Our human rights handbook gives great insight into what participants can expect in a workshop.
Mediation Services are a bespoke package of human rights and emotional wellness support we provide to victims of human rights injustices. Victims can make self referrals to us or be referred by an organisation, we then assess their circumstances by definition of international and municipal human rights law and make a decision on how we can best assist.
The way in which we advocate for service user depends on specific need. We have successfully lobbied for victims by raising human rights injustices to the United Nations via Special Procedures and urging governments to recognise the indivisible impact a single human rights injustice can have on the wider community. We also communicate with local government, public bodies and various other organisations for service users.
As well as advocacy, service users are also provided with emotional wellness services from Creative Treaty, though we do sometimes outsource counselling and therapy services that may better meet the needs of our service users.
Our Mediation Services exist to emphasise the detrimental effect infractions have on victim’s wellbeing. Human rights infractions like racist treatment, sex and gender based discrimination and a prejudicial justice system can have a traumatic effect on a victim’s self esteem, leaving them questioning their value. We aim to empower our Mediation Service users through advocacy and emotional support.
During, and in the immediate aftermath, of the COVID-19 pandemic we distributed more than 2000 Wellness Packs to local communities - with the aim of supporting well-being and promoting human rights awareness.
Our packs contained: a Aldi grocery voucher, hand sanitiser, face mask, vitamin D supplement and our Human Rights Handbook ( a fun reference that outlines your human rights needs.)
We are able to provide these packs thanks to funding from The National Lottery Fund.
