Most organisations working with human rights are private non-profit initiatives. Each usually specializes in in protecting specific groups in society and advocating for the rights that are relevant to those groups. They can often help with legal advice and provide practical, social or psychological support to victims of human rights related violations. These organisations are often also involved in raising public awareness, defending rights and advocating policies, providing legal aid or other support, and monitoring and research activities.
There are also several state agencies that deal directly or indirectly with human rights in different areas, such as children’s rights, data protection, health, employment etc. These agencies can be consulted for a variety of reasons and may offer consultations or legal aid, as well as examine complaints from individuals.
