The Scottish Human Rights Commission sincerely thank all those who have helped to develop this Care about Rights? resource pack.

We would especially like to thank David Rennie at the Private Care Sector Workforce Initiative team at Scottish Care for partnering us in coordinating this project. We would also like to thank Dr Donald Macaskill for assisting in the writing of the learning material; Dale Corlett and the whole team at GMAC who produced the film material; Simon Heath and Amanda Farnese at Onespace Creative for the design and production of the materials; and Kieron Smith and the team at Factonomy for the development of the web based Care about Rights tool.

Thank you also to Greenock Medical Aid Society, Balmanno House Care Home and Greenfield Park Care Home for allowing us access to their homes to meet the residents and staff, take pictures and film.

We are particularly grateful to all those who contributed to our care sector reference group meetings and consultation focus groups which assisted us greatly in gaining a better understanding of the both the daily and systemic issues facing the care sector and people who access services.

Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to the Scottish Government, COSLA, the Care Commission, the Mental Welfare Commission, Age Scotland, Alzheimer Scotland, the Scottish Dementia Working Group, the Stroke Association, Carers Scotland, East Renfrewshire Carers Centre, Royal College of Nurses, Dementia Services Development Centre, Care Information Scotland, Scottish Social Services Council and the many participating care provider organisations for their support and input into the Care about Rights? project. We hope that your invaluable participation in the development of these materials is reflected in the overall quality and impact of the project.
