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

Alongside 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 National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) (this link will take you away from our website).

The 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.

The ALLIANCE produces publications on human rights, has given evidence at the Scottish Parliament on human rights, and is a partner of the Scottish Human Rights Committee in a human rights budgeting initiative.
