The series brings people together to discuss how we can build lives founded upon dignity and respect. 

The ‘Being Human’ series explores the importance of embedding human rights into health and social care policy and practice through a series of events including lectures and panel discussions. Events highlight the stigma, discrimination and inequality faced by disabled people, people living with long term conditions and unpaid carers in Scotland and the relationship this has to their rights.

The series brings together academics and professionals from across the sector to discuss how we can ensure everyone can live healthy, thriving lives founded upon dignity and respect. 

To help raise awareness and promote human rights the Academy produces resources including The Importance of Human Rights in Health and Social Care and Human Rights Act Explainer- human rights in Scotland.
