Alex Stobart: Why person-centred politics should matter in this Scottish Parliament
Alex Stobart says putting people at the heart of service delivery should be a focal point of the new Scottish Parliament
IN December 2015, the Welfare Reform Committee of the Scottish Parliament recommended major principles in a Report on the Future Delivery of Social Security in Scotland.
These principles focus on the people of Scotland, their self-sovereign identity, rights and needs as citizens including -
- Person-centred services in the whole system
- Dignity; respect; non-punitive
- Human rights and the right to participate
