Our work in society
We enrich people’s lives here in Scotland and abroad by encouraging and supporting the interplay and exchange of ideas, skills and experiences. We do that by working with a broad range of local partners representing various parts of Scottish society.
We believe that building trust between Scotland and other countries helps create stronger socio-economic links. By broadening people’s horizons and connecting Scots to other countries and cultures, we help boost the nation’s prosperity.
