Asylum Seekers and Refugees
Multi-cultural and diverse communities are an important and valuable part of life in Northamptonshire, enriching our understanding of different cultures and traditions and bringing lasting benefits to the county. However alongside the benefits of sharing and understanding difference is the room for misunderstanding, often based on misinformation and undue criticism about communities who are perceived as 'different'.

Human rights were created to bring the principles of fairness, respect, equality, dignity and autonomy to life by setting out a series of rights and freedoms that we are all entitled to as a result of our shared humanity.
At their most basic human rights are about how we treat each other. As a result they are particularly important for some of the more vulnerable or less powerful in our society, such as people in care, young children or people with learning difficulties.

Religion and Belief
Northamptonshire Inter Faith Forum (NIFF) was formally launched in 2006 for the mutual encouragement of individual faith communities, and to work for better understanding between members of different faiths.
NIFF includes representatives of the following faiths: Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh. Members of these faiths live throughout the county of Northamptonshire. Until now there has been no way in which people of all the different faiths could contact each other across the county, nor has there been a resource for others who need to make contact with the various groups. The directory aims to meet that need.
The Countywide Traveller Unit (CTU) deals with unauthorised encampments and Traveller related issues. To provide for Travellers and settled communities across the County a multi-agency approach to support and enforcement, that fosters good relations, and in which the rights and responsibilities of all communities are respected.
The Unit works together to deal with Traveller matters on behalf of all the councils in Northamptonshire (except East Northamptonshire Council). The Unit has widespread support from partners within the county. The Gypsy and Traveller Policy provides information and guidance to ensure all policies and working practices are consistent with Government guidance and comply with specified legislation and Human Rights.
