Amnesty UK


We are Amnesty International UK. We work to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.

As a global movement of over ten million people, Amnesty International is the world's largest grassroots human rights organisation.

We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilise the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We received the Nobel Peace Prize for our life-saving work.

Independent, international and influential, Amnesty International campaigns for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever and whenever they are denied. Amnesty’s global network of over ten million people makes a difference in almost every country in the world. Whether we are applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we are all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are enjoyed by all.

Amnesty International UK is a prominent member of this global human rights movement – the world’s largest. We employ 175 staff and raise over £30m every year to campaign for both individuals and on broader human rights issues such as torture, women’s rights and freedom of speech. Our nearly 480,000 supporters take action and provide vital funding to protect the human rights of people in the UK and around the world.
