Better Lives – Health and Social Care

A dedicated website was developed for the SNAP Health and Social Care Action Group by one of its co-Chairs, the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE).  This is now included in the ALLIANCE’s website (this link will take you away from our website).

As part of this work, the Scottish Human Rights Commission, the ALLIANCE and NHS Health Scotland (the other co-Chair of the Action Group) joined forces to launch a series of short films highlighting the power of human rights to improve people’s health and the care and support they access. The films highlight how human rights have been used in dementia care, mental health detention, advocacy, youth work and services for disabled people.

Featuring interviews with people whose rights have been affected, as well as charities and voluntary organisations that work with them, the films are a practical resource to help organisations providing services to embed human rights in their work.
