We are gathering views to help inform how we will take forward the Human Rights Bill. This is a guide to help people hold their own group discussions about the Bill.

1. Human Rights Bill – Consultation Facilitator’s Guide

Who is the pack for?

This pack intends to help people who are hosting a meeting to discuss the Human Rights Bill consultation. It provides an overview of the consultation and potential questions for facilitation. If you require any further information or guidance, please get in touch with us at

The following materials may be useful to those organising an event about the Bill and seeking to facilitate engagement with the consultation:

The full consultation

  • The full consultation document can be found here. The purpose of the consultation is to allow people to learn about our proposals for the Bill and tell us what they think so it can inform how we develop the Bill. Respondents can complete the consultation online here.

The consultation guide

  • The consultation guide can be found here. The guide sets out a plain-English overview of the Bill and could help participants understand the broad purpose of the Bill as they discuss each topic and answer the questions.
