The ALLIANCE MEMBERSHIP

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) is the national third sector intermediary for a wealth of health and social care organisations. It brings together over 1,500 members, including a large network of national and local third sector organisations, associates in the statutory and private sectors and individuals. 
 
The ALLIANCE’s vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long-term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy the right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with access to support and services that put them at the centre. 
 
The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to: 
 
  • Ensure people are at the centre: that their voices, expertise and rights drive policy and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services;
 
  • Support transformational change: shifting towards approaches that work with individual and community assets; helping people to stay well, supporting human rights, self management, co-production and independent living;
  • Champion and support the third sector: as a vital strategic and service delivery partner, and also foster better cross-sector understanding and partnership.
 
"It’s a safe space, everybody round the table has
an equal voice..."
