Do you work for a Health and Social Care Partnership and are you keen to join your peers in work on human rights?

If so, why not join the HSCP Practitioner Human Rights Forum, which is facilitated and supported by the ALLIANCE.  

The aim of the Forum is to provide dedicated time and space for HSCP practitioners (people who work for Health and Social Care Partnerships) to come together as peers in a ‘safe space’ to discuss, share information, and develop learning and practice on human rights and the human rights based approach. The Forum meets quarterly and keeps in touch in between via email and MS Teams. It is supported by a dedicated team of skilled and experienced ALLIANCE facilitators, who help organise meetings and work with Forum members to identify focus topics and invite guest speakers. 

The Forum supports health and social care integration and is open to new members from across the HSCP practitioner sphere on an ongoing basis. We welcome any HSCP practitioner who wishes to play an active part in working with their peers towards the Forum purpose and in line with the Terms of Reference. Current members include HSCP practitioners working on older people’s services, commissioning, mental health, learning disability and autism, and social care. 

Our next online Forum meeting is on Monday 25 October (2pm-4pm), when we’ll be joined by Cathy Asante from the Scottish Human Rights Commission who’s going to give a presentation on human rights in health and social care.
