Personalisation and Human Rights

Authors: Kavita Chetty, John Dalrymple and Henry Simmons

In this discussion paper the authors argue that the broad policy concepts and detailed practice of personalisation are rooted in, and informed by, human rights: both with regard to the general approach human rights imply and the underpinning legal framework they provide.

It is further argued that a current Scottish manifestation of “personalisation” - the national Self-Directed Support Strategy together with the associated legislation in progress – creates a solid platform to build on and should be implemented locally, in such a way that the human rights principles that lie at its core are clearly evident in the lives of individual men and women.
