  1.  The purpose of the Task Force is to:

    (i)  help Departments and other public authorities prepare for implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998; and

    (ii)  increase general awareness, especially among young people, of the rights and responsibilities flowing from the incorporation of European Convention on Human Rights and thus to help build a human rights culture in the United Kingdom.

  2.  The Task Force will maintain a dialogue between Government and non-governmental organisations on the readiness of public authorities for implementation. It will help identify, promote and support, as appropriate, a range of intitiatives and opportunities to assist training and development, including the production and dissemination of appropriate guidance, good practice and publicity material.
