We enrich the lives of people in Scotland and abroad by encouraging and supporting the exchange of ideas, skills and experiences.

Working with a range of partners representing various parts of Scottish society, we build trust between Scotland and other countries to help create stronger socio-economic links.

By broadening horizons and connecting people in Scotland to other countries and cultures we help boost the nation’s prosperity.
