New report by the Academy and My Home Life team shares how storytelling can support human rights in care homes

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and we are pleased to publish a new report – “A Rights Blether: Using storytelling to help embed human rights in Care homes. ”

Working with the My Home Life team at University of the West of Scotland,  the Academy created an event to explore how we might use storytelling to support relationships.

In the event which was called a “Rights Blether “ delegates explored where human rights were being promoted and experienced.  From there, we developed a Map to enable good conversations.  The stories that emerged demonstrated the  great work that currently exists and how others can learn from this and develop their own language and practice of human rights.

This report explains the process, gives ideas for practice and identifies the key messages; in particular this is a relational process and change happens between people.

It’s is recommended for those involved in care in care homes. We are keen to continue the conversation around this piece of work so please also share your stories using twitter handle #ARightsBlether
