About Us

The Human Rights Consortium Scotland is the civil society network to protect and promote human rights in Scotland.

The Consortium’s membership includes charities, voluntary organisations, faith groups, academic networks and professional associations. HRCS Individual Supporters come from all walks of life.

We work towards two strategic outcomes:

Outcome 1: A strong, collective civil society voice to protect and promote human rights in Scotland.

Outcome 2: Civil society has the resources and understanding that it needs to protect and promote human rights in Scotland.

Our funders

We are very grateful for funding from: the Legal Education Foundation for the Civil Society Brexit Project in partnership with Glasgow University and Strathclyde University; the Paul Hamlyn Foundation for funding towards a project on strengthening migrants’ human rights; and for funding from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.  We are also grateful to Amnesty International for their previous support in hosting us while we developed our infrastructure and prepared to become an independent organisation.
