Humanity - Supporting human rights, equality and wellbeing for all

Minutes are here: www.scvo.org.uk/policycommittee

As a reminder, we agreed:

  • The manifesto would be both for politicians but also the wider sector
  • It should focus on appealing to all political parties rather than the likely party of government.
  • To look ahead to 2030.
  • To use the SDGs as a frame.
  • To include aims for the next five years and ambitions for 2030.

Theme Statement[edit | edit source]

Scotland is a place where all policy and public services support human rights, social justice, equality and well-being for its people, and whose politicians and public bodies are accountable to the people for that.

NB - we didn't do the narrative on 21/8 so that is still to do

responsibilities

human rights \ uncrc

poverty

wellbeing - education - personal and collective resilience

accountability

Aims for Government[edit | edit source]

Embed human rights directly into Scots law

Introduce a citizen's income

Provide universally accessible physical, technological and human infrastructure/resource to sustain all of our people prioritising flexible working as a way of facilitating a more diverse workforce

No policy without people / No innovation without involvement

Provide universally accessible transport for all ?

Procure in accordance with the theme statement esp. in social care including a new minimum wage for care staff and inter-generational provision

Scottish Government commits to fund the board/staff 'diversity initiative'

Ambitions for Government[edit | edit source]

Aims for the Sector[edit | edit source]

Embed human rights in service delivery

Provide opportunities to 'pay it forward' beyond 'work'

Build our services around physical, technological and human infrastructure/resource including prioritising flexible working as a way of facilitating a more diverse workforce

Bring people to policy, involve people in innovation

Recruit staff and deliver services as enabled by the revised procurement regime / deliver person-centred care and inter-generational provision

Third sector representative bodies will create a programme of work to support the sector to engage with communities from which they would like to recruit staff and board members in pursuit of diversity; and this will include establishing and publicising ways to facilitate collective decision making otherwise than in the mind-numbingly tedious format of a board
