The Academy works with people who use health and social care services to influence positive and significant change across Scotland.

The transformation of health and social care requires people with lived experience to be at the heart of it.  The Academy works to support people to be involved through sharing their learning, connecting with others and ensuring that as many stakeholders as possible are viewing challenges through the lens of lived experience.

The Academy’s work is driven by the Five Provocations for the Future of Health and Social Care. These are areas that leaders from across Scotland identified as being important elements to create the conditions needed for positive and significant change across health and social care.

The Academy works co-productively with individuals and organisations who are working and supporting transformational change in health and social care.

Details of the Academy’s work can be found on the Working for change page.

We are always keen to explore partnership working and discuss potentially transformational ideas. If you have questions or want to get involved with the Academy, please email via academy@alliance-scotland.org.uk or call 0141 404 0231.
