Key National Agencies

As a national agency with a membership stretching across Scotland, SALSC works with national partners to raise awareness and initiate constructive and consistent change across the whole of Scotland. While SALSC interacts with a number of different national bodies to a lesser and greater extent, the three key partnerships SALSC that are fundamental to dirving constructive and sustainable change are:
