SIAA peer support for staff – human rights defenders

Online

In this session members can share expertise about using human rights in their every day practice, and being human rights defenders - particularly in light of human rights moving higher up the agenda in Scotland.

Thank you for facilitating the recent sessions, myself and the team members who participated real enjoyed them and found it very valuable in this new working environment.

This was really interesting, a great way to gather views and get people involved in discussing views. I would welcome seeing more of this way of working. Good Job SIAA.

I found it really helpful to be connected to a larger group and to hear the variety of perspectives from others as we all face the impact of the coronavirus on our organisations, people, clients and key stakeholders.
