(adapted from an email from the Scottish Community Development Centre)
Last year, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon set up an independent Advisory Group to develop a series of recommendations and actions around human rights in Scotland – and you can have your say with this online survey.
Human rights are a vital part of a just and equal society. They give you a set of rights and freedoms regardless of where you are from, how old you are, what you believe, or how you choose to live your life.
How your human rights are affected by governments and other bodies is becoming increasingly important, with the Advisory Group making recommendations on how we can protect our existing rights and examine how Scotland can go further in demonstrating human rights leadership.
The Advisory Group want to hear your views and feedback on their developing recommendations and how they can be made as effective as possible in improving the lives of people and communities.
Share your views
The survey will be open until 11th October. The survey has also been translated into BSL.
You can also join the discussion on Facebook and Twitter using #HumanRightsLeadership, You can follow the @HRLeadershipSco Twitter account, Like them on Facebook and visit the website www.humanrightsleadership.scot for more.

Beginning 19 March, the City of Edinburgh Council will undertake six weeks of public consultation and engagement on taking Edinburgh Trams to Newhaven. This will provide the public, local business and stakeholders with general information on the project, specific details around traffic management during construction and the proposed permanent design. We will also outline our current proposals on how we aim to support local business during the construction period.
During consultation your views will be sought on traffic management and phasing. This includes proposals for the closure of Leith Walk to all northbound traffic, with a single city-bound lane remaining open and the phased closure and reopening of Constitution Street. Work in these areas is expected to last for up to 18 months. Continue reading
