Human Rights & Justice

The Website was released to the public view at the start of September 2019. To start with, what you see on this page will be a list of organisations, with a brief description of each and their web address.

Those listed currently have been chosen as random examples and are in no way fully representative of the many organisations working in this field.

The majority of those listed have not yet approved of their display on this site: (it seemed impossible to ask permission before the website was open to the public and the group in question could judge what was being proposed to them.) Those listed (and many others) will all be approached in the near future and those who approve will be asked to add their own photo of choice and a blurb of up to 150 words.
