Care about rights

The Scottish Human Rights Commission has developed training and awareness raising resources relating to the care and support of older people.

This project aims to empower people to understand their human rights, and increase the ability and accountability of those who have the duties to respect, protect and fulfil rights.

In Scotland the population is ageing - there will be choices about how resources are spent by different public authorities, and in the services offered by public, private and voluntary groups. The Commission would like to see a commitment to human rights becoming central in everyday practice and policy in the care and support of older people.
