Context[edit | edit source]
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
human rights \ uncrc
wellbeing - education - personal and collective resilience
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
