Please note we do not provide advice and help to individuals about human rights concerns.

See Help and Advice for details of organisations and services that may be able to help.

Because the Commission is a small organisation with a focus on policy and awareness raising work rather than research, we are not usually able to take part in research projects or respond to surveys or requests for individual interviews.

If your research covers one of the key priority areas in the Commission's current Strategic Plan, you are welcome to send us brief questions and we will do our best to signpost you to useful sources of information, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee a substantive response or offer to meet with you in person.

Occasionally the behaviour or actions of an individual who contacts the Commission makes it difficult for us to respond to their enquiry and / or undertake our duties. In a small number of cases their actions become unacceptable. This policy explains how we approach these situations.
