Earlier this year, POhWER launched our first annual Human Rights Beliefs and Attitudes Survey. 352 people participated in the anonymous digital survey which included 47 questions.

The annual anonymous survey was launched by POhWER to understand and test the extent of how existing human rights and entitlements written into our laws and public services were understood and perceived by the British public. Were they embraced? Were they rejected? Did people believe these rights applied to them? Did people believe that everyone in our society deserved to have human rights protections? Did people know how to access or complain about their own rights?

In this important year of review of the Human Rights Act, these survey results act as an important snapshot at this point in time. Read the full survey findings below.
