Scottish Care and partners have been developing a 'Human Rights Charter for Technology and Digital in Social Care' over the past year, involving work from developers and designers, providers and practitioners, residents and citizens we use social care support. This charter details 17 principles that should be followed when using technology in the care of people in Scotland. A guidance document has also been produced which briefly discusses each principle individually and suggests how they can be used to support the human rights of individuals and communities in the use of technology and digital in social care.

We encourage you to take a look through the Guidance Document and Charter below.

It is our hope that any readers, whether from organisations, members and individuals will want to sign up to the Charter. We are currently creating a distinct page for this, but in the meantime please email shanice.shek@scottishcare.org stating your name and we will get back to you soon.
