Today launch of Scotland’s first National Action Plan for #HumanRights (SNAP ) Dementia Carer Voices supports Charter of Rights

Dementia Carer Voices fundamentally supports the objectives of the Charter of Rights for People with Dementia and their Carers, which adheres to the PANEL approach to carers rights - that is that carers have the right to - 
  • Participate in decisions which affect their human rights;
  • Accountability of those responsible for the respect, protection and fulfilment of human rights;
  • Non Discrimination and equality
  • Empowerment to know their rights and how to claim them;
  • Legality in all decisions through an explicit link with human rights, legal standards in all processes and outcome measurements
The project team have produced a short case study reflecting how recent dementia policy in Scotland offers an example of how a human rights based approach can be applied   Click here to download the case study.
