Human Rights Bill Discussion Session
We are holding the second of our discussion sessions on the Human Rights Bill in Glasgow City Centre on Monday 18th September – and we’d love to see you there!
This is clearly quite a far-reaching bill proposed by the Scottish Government and a huge topic to discuss. At the session we will try to look at some of the most relevant parts, including topics such as Advocacy, Complaints, Dignity, Healthy Environment, Participation and ‘The right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health’.
We would love to hear what members have to say and what you would like to be fed back to the Scottish Government.

National Care Service: Summer 2023 Co-Design Events
The Scottish Government is hosting a series of regional forums this summer, as part of the development of the National Care Service.
These local events will be held across Scotland, from June to August, and will be an excellent opportunity for people with lived experience of social care support to have their say.
There will also be five online events for those who cannot make it along in person.
The purpose of the events is to find out more about the unique nature of social care support in local areas across Scotland – and discuss what everyone would like to see in the future National Care Service. Each event will be different, focusing on co-designing the National Care Service with specific sessions on the following themes:
- information sharing to improve care support
- keeping care support local
- realising rights and responsibilities
- making sure my voice is heard
- valuing the workforce
You will have an opportunity to hear directly from local experts – whilst also taking part in design and research activities related to your own experience.
This is your opportunity to use your experience to shape the future of community health and social care in Scotland. For more information about the events and how to sign up, please visit gov.scot/ncs
