human rights

The ALLIANCE works to support human rights to be embedded in to health and social care policy and practice.

We have championed human rights and the rights based approach since our inception. Our vision clearly states that we want to see a Scotland “where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.”

Our aim is to mainstream equalities and human rights through all our work. We produce publications on human rights, have given evidence at the Scottish Parliament on human rights. For more information about our other human rights work please click a sub-menu item.
