The Scottish Government’s delayed consultation on the Human Rights Bill has finally been published.  The Bill aims to bring our international human rights directly into Scots law.  We know that independent advocacy is vital for making rights real for people and can be especially important for people that face barriers to realising their rights.

SIAA will work with members and groups across civil society to provide a consultation response that offers clarity on what independent advocacy is, how it works and its importance in the context of human rights as well as makes clear asks of the Scottish Government about rights to independent advocacy and duties on public bodies to provide it. There are lots of ways to share your views on the consultation, so your views will be included in responses from civil society. We have listed various events from Scottish Government and HRCS as well as the SIAA roundtable below.

SIAA are keen to discuss the opportunities for independent advocacy that this consultation brings with members. To join in the discussions, you can sign up for the SIAA members roundtable to discuss the Human Rights Bill consultation on Wednesday 2 August 2023, 3-4.30pm.
