We work closely with governments, parliaments, and other public bodies to promote the importance of recognising the benefits of healthy partnerships with voluntary organisations.
We want national and local governments and other public bodies to recognise the expertise of Scotland’s voluntary sector in the design and delivery of policy strategy and services.
We also want to ensure the public sector adopt good practices when involving and engaging with the voluntary sector, from the consultation stage to fully fledged partnerships.
We work with other partners to develop understanding and share learning about what makes a positive partnerships and their impact. We also promote the sector’s role as a crucial partner in areas including the National Performance Framework and UK-EU Trade Cooperation Agreement.
