The ALLIANCE was actively involved in Scotland's first National Action Plan for Human Rights.

The ALLIANCE has been actively engaged with SNAP since its inception.

We are currently a member of the SNAP 2 Leadership Panel. For more information about SNAP 2 visit the official website.

With Public Health Scotland (formerly NHS Health Scotland), the ALLIANCE previously co-convened the SNAP 1 Health and Social Care Action Group established under SNAP 1.

This 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.

Case studies

The SNAP 1 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 ALLIANCE, Glasgow Homelessness Network,  the Mental Health Foundation and NHS Heath Scotland. The project built on the work of SNAP and informed the work of the Health and Social Care Action Group.
