We believe everyone deserves to live well and flourish, with our human rights respected, protected, and fulfilled. Protecting economic, social and cultural rights is essential in creating a fairer and more just society, and that is why we champion these rights.


We want to make our everyday rights part of UK law, so we are gathering people together to discuss the issue and develop ideas on the practicalities of how this can be achieved across the UK. This is referred to as ESCR incorporation.

It’s the everyday rights conversation.

Together we can find the route to a better UK. Join in.

What are economic, social and cultural rights?

Economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR) are the rights of everyday life, for all of us. They include the right to food, water, housing, work and workers’ rights, social security, health, education, and a healthy environment.

These rights are recognised in international human rights law. But we are living in an uncertain and divided UK in which all human rights are under threat.

On 8 November 2023 we hosted a major conference in Westminster, ‘Everyday human rights – the route to a better UK.

Five years on from the then UN Special Rapporteur Philip Alston’s visit to the UK, we heard from speakers on the state of poverty, inequality, and human rights in the UK.

Check out the report, speaker presentations and videos from the day.
