Caxton Legal Centre’s statement on Human Rights
Our vision is for a just and inclusive Queensland.
The Human Rights Act 2019 (the Act) protects fundamental human rights drawn from international human rights law.
Public entities, as defined under the Human Rights Act, are required to act and make decisions in a way that is compatible with human rights.
This means fairer laws, policies and practices in those public entities’ day-to-day dealings with the community.
- put the human rights of our clients at the forefront of everything we do;
- provide legal education, publications and information to the community about human rights;
- train our staff and volunteer lawyers to be able to provide legal advice about human rights law; and
- show leadership in the further advancement and protection of human rights in Queensland
If you believe a public entity has breached your human rights you can seek assistance from us.
If you believe Caxton has breached your human rights you can make a complaint to us. If you are not satisfied with our response after 45 business days, you may have a right to complain to the Queensland Human Rights Commission.
