Social Care and the Scottish Human Rights Bill – Consultation Event

Join Disability Equality Scotland and partners at an online event from 3pm to 5pm on Thursday 31 August 2023 to discuss social care and the proposed Scottish Human Rights Bill.

The Scottish Government has published a Scottish Human Rights Bill consultation. This is an ambitious step for human rights in Scotland because the Bill will embed rights into Scots law.  If done well, this could improve rights-based decision making across the country and make it easier for people to name and claim their rights.  The purpose of the Scottish Government’s consultation is to share their proposals for the Bill and for people to tell them what they think. This will then inform how they develop the Bill.

This online event will have a particular focus on social care. Event participants will learn more about the Scottish Government’s proposals for the Bill, discuss why it matters and how it relates to social care, and how you might want to respond to the Scottish Government consultation.
