Every year, York: Human Rights City reports on how the city is performing using two to three indicators for each of the five York priority rights (equality & non- discrimination, health & social care, housing, education and a decent standard of living). Additionally, this year the report also includes extra information on the right to housing, and discusses lived experiences of people whose housing rights are compromised.
The report is available in hardcopy from the Centre for Applied Human Rights, York CVS, and from the city's libraries, and it can be also downloaded online. The report has been welcomed by civil sector organisations around the city, and made headlines in the York Press. The 2019 report, which will be launched in December, will focus on the right to a decent standard of living (investigating child poverty, food insecurity and low wages in the city) whilst providing updates for indicators for the other priority rights.
