North East

We are in North East England, from Northumberland to Redcar & Cleveland, to bring together organisations and individuals in a Social Rights Alliance.

Social Rights Alliance

A regional network that uses human rights for social justice. Let’s transform. Do you want to do this together?

Our Pledge

Everyone is entitled to good education, adequate housing, public healthcare, quality food, strong social security and a decent standard of living.


We asked candidates standing in the local elections (May 2019) to support the implementation of the socio-economic duty in their local authority.

Council Motions

We have presented a motion to councils across the region  gain support for local activities that defend and promote social rights. 


Tuesday 19th November    9:30-16:300    Stadium of Light, Sunderland

We will be running a workshop at the convention. Join us in conversation and planning around how to advance social rights across the North East using a rights-based approach. 

There is a programme for the whole day too. Book your place here.

This event is being run by People’s Powerhouse.
