The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities reaffirms disabled people’s human rights. It recognises that equality and human rights are for everyone and sets out how governments should ensure those rights are protected.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland (ECNI), the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC) and the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) are designated, by Article 33(2), as the UK Independent Mechanism (UKIM) to promote, protect and monitor the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) in the UK.
