Northamptonshire REC’s vision is to challenge and eradicate discrimination (both personal and institutional) and prejudice or hostility in all its forms; so that all Northamptonshire’s diverse communities and citizens can enjoy peace, achieve their full potential and live free from injustice. We aim for a socially cohesive society in which diversity and human rights are recognised, celebrated and valued.
In brief, we campaign for social justice in Northamptonshire in the context of the wider agenda for equalities and human rights.
We will undertake this work regardless of race, colour, religion, disability, age, sexuality, transgender status or gender.
To do this we:
- support and represent individual victims of discrimination
- support victims of hate incidents and monitor hate incidents
- raise awareness of the rights of individuals not to experience discrimination and to have their human rights upheld.

There are alternative immigration advice providers. None of these offer a free service in the same way that NREC historically offered. They include:
