Human Rights Bill Lived Experience Boards


To ensure meaningful participation from people who have experienced barriers to realising their human rights the Scottish Government have established a Lived Experience Board, comprised of people who face historic and ongoing barriers to realising their rights, as well as those from communities that are seldom heard in policy development processes. These are playing a key role in the development and delivery of the Human Rights Bill.


As part of the Bill development there are three separate groups within the Lived Experience Board. Their work is facilitated by civil society stakeholders funded by the Scottish Government to ensure topics are engaging and accessible for all. These Lived Experience Boards work equally alongside the Human Rights Bill Advisory Board and Human Rights Bill Executive Board.

The groups that form the Lived Experience Board are Human Rights Consortium Scotland, Scottish Commission for People with Learning Disabilities and Together Scotland.
