Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of the #RightApproach campaign by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO); understands that through quotes, blogs, case-studies and videos, the campaign will seek to promote and encourage human rights-based approaches within the third sector and beyond; recognises that the #RightApproach campaign aims to ensure the principles of dignity and equality, currently enshrined in international human rights treaties and law, are realised at grassroots level; believes that by pursuing a human rights-based approach to service delivery in both the public and third sectors, outcomes will greatly improve for individuals, communities, wider society and within public and third sector bodies; shares the view that many peoples' human rights are currently not being realised, particularly in terms of health and well-being, the right to food, the right to shelter and the right to freedom of expression; is concerned that following the EU referendum result, many people are anxious that their human rights will be diminished; and believes that by taking the #RightApproach, organisations across the public and third sectors can reaffirm their commitment to human rights.
