The ALLIANCE is actively involved in both Scotland's first and second National Action Plan for Human Rights.

With NHS Health Scotland, the ALLIANCE co-convenes the Health and Social Care Action Group (this link will take you away from our website) established under Scotland’s first National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) (this link will take you away from our website).

The SNAP Health and Social Care Action Group brings 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.

Since 2017, the ALLIANCE has also been actively engaged in helping to develop Scotland’s second National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP2) (this link will take you away from our website). This includes being a member of the SNAP2 Development Working Group, alongside partners like the Scottish Human Rights Commission, organisations in the public, third, and independent sectors, and rights holders.
