Human Rights Indicators for York

How can we measure York’s journey to becoming a Human Rights City? We’ve worked with City of York Council, York CVS, North Yorkshire Police and the voluntary sector to develop indicators in five different areas:

  • Non-discrimination and Equality
  • Health and Social Care
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Standards of Living

These areas were decided through a participatory process with residents and community groups.

We developed our first report with indicators to measure York’s progress towards dealing with these key human rights issues in December 2016.

On 7th December 2017, we released our second report reporting on progress and challenges.
