We have organised the information in this booklet around six key rights areas. These key areas are also contained within the National Care Standards, which have been set by the Scottish Government and the Care Inspectorate. The six key rights areas the standards are based on are: dignity, privacy, choice, safety, realising potential and equality and diversity.

We have expanded these headings a little to make sure we cover information that you might find useful:
