Better Lives – Health and Social Care

A dedicated website has been developed by the SNAP  Health and Social Care Action Group which has all the latest information about work in this area. 

As part of this work, the Scottish Human Rights Commission, the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) and NHS Health Scotland 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.
