Human rights recognise freedom to make choices about life

The New Zealand Coalition to End Homelessness (the Coalition) believes every person has inherent dignity and value. Human rights recognise our freedom to make choices about our lives and develop our potential as human beings. Owing to a range of circumstances and barriers, homeless people are excluded from these fundamental rights. Often their dignity and mana are diminished and they are not able to enjoy the benefits (economic, spiritual, social and cultural rights-education, employment good health and affordable, healthy housing) that underpin a fair and just society that are vital to the dignity, equality and security of individuals.
