Declaration is a unique partnership between the Mental Health Foundation, the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), NHS Health Scotland, and the Centre for Health Policy at the University of Strathclyde.

The organisations behind Declaration have come together as part of Scotland’s National Action Plan on Human Rights(SNAP), and the programme is based around the SNAP themes of Better Culture, Better Lives and Better World. The festival is continuing to explore the First Minister’s vow to ‘do even more even better on incorporating human rights in Scotland’, and is part of an on-going commitment to the right to health and social care in Scotland.
