The Promise Scotland's policy work helps decision makers make choices that will #KeepThePromise.

It does this through influencing policy development.

The Promise Scotland doesn't routinely respond to policy consultations. Instead, it does so if:

  • there is a unique perspective it can bring, or
  • there is a risk of policy or legislative development which isn't in line with keeping the promise.

The Promise Scotland will provide:

  • information decision makers will need, and
  • insights generated through the work of The Promise Scotland.
