Rights Made Real reports showcase importance of human rights in care homes in Scotland

The Rights Made Real in Care Homes was established in 2019, with the Life Changes Trust investment of £135,000 to support seven projects across Scotland to promote the inclusion and participation of care home residents with dementia in a meaningful way.

Each of the seven projects, which took place within care home settings across Scotland, demonstrated how human rights can be embedded in practice across all aspects of care home life and support whilst showcasing real examples of creativity, innovation and dedication in upholding and respecting human rights.

This report, entitled ‘Recognising, respecting and responding: promoting human rights for residents of care homes in Scotland’. Commissioned by Life Changes Trust, the report brings together a collection of stories from across the project sites with the aim of informing and supporting rights-based practice in all care home support.
