This is a key post, charged with delivering significant external communications reach and impact. The role supports and contributes significantly to the Commission’s programme of work to raise awareness and improve understanding of human rights with a wide range of external audiences.
The Scottish Human Rights Commission is an independent public body with a broad remit to promote and protect human rights for everyone in Scotland. We are independent of government and parliament.
The Commission works on a range of legal, policy and practical issues which affect people’s human rights in Scotland. Current areas of work include housing, food, health and social care, policing and prisons, business and human rights, and biometrics.
As well as monitoring law, policy and practice, the Commission also promotes awareness, understanding and respect for human rights. We produce resources to support other organisations to take a human rights based approach to their work, and to help build understanding of human rights among the wider public.
