SNAP 1 Health and Social Care Action Group
The ALLIANCE was actively involved in Scotland's first National Action Plan for Human Rights.
With Public Health Scotland (formerly NHS Health Scotland), the ALLIANCE co-convened the Health and Social Care Action Group established under Scotland’s first National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP).
The SNAP Health and Social Care Action Group brought together a range of partners, including statutory sector, third sector organisations, and people with lived experience, to identify opportunities for using human rights as a driver for change in health and social care and challenge and lobby for greater change to achieve this. The SNAP Health and Social Care Action Group has now been transformed into the Action Group for Advancing Human Rights in Health and Social Care.
The Health and Social Care Action Group created case studies which show how different organisations have put a human rights based approach into practice in their work. You can access the case studies on the Scottish Human Rights Commission website (this link will take you away from our website).
Peer research project: What do you mean I have a right to health?
Between 2015 – 2016, a peer research project, What do you mean I have a right to health?, was undertaken in partnership with the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland, the Health and Social Care Academy, Glasgow Homelessness Network, the Mental Health Foundation and NHS Heath Scotland. The project builds on the work of SNAP and informed the work of the Health and Social Care Action Group.
