ppr support disadvantaged groups to assert their right to participate in social and economic decisions which affect their lives. PPR currently works on issues including mental health, adequate housing, regeneration and the right to play with groups across the island of Ireland.
PPR enables groups to challenge and change current government decision making practices which exclude them, and which lead to poor service delivery, entrenched inequalities and ineffective use of public money.
To do this, PPR supports affected groups to use a Human Rights Based Approach to the economic and social issues that directly impact their lives.
PPR was founded in 2001 and is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
