GRIPP is made up of a number of individuals, projects and organisations from across the nations and regions of the UK who endeavour to take a human rights-based approach. We work together to develop and deliver joint and individual initiatives through new collaborations.
Present members of GRIPP are Amnesty UK, ATD Fourth World UK, Intisaar, Just Fair, RAPAR, Thrive Teesside and University of Essex Human Rights Centre alongside individual activists Susanna Hunter-Darch and Rhetta Moran.
This project is a check on the UK government – a reality check from the grassroots. It will reveal the truth of poverty as a violation of human rights in the UK and in so doing expose the gross inadequacy of this government’s response and its blockage of the UN’s efforts to ensure transparency and accountability to those who have signed up to International Covenants.
From September 2022 to December 2024, a number of grassroots groups, from across the regions and nations of the UK, are researching their lived experience, sharing and telling their stories to the UN and other decision-makers.
