Scottish Public Authorities Search 

To find contact information for Scottish public authorities either use the search box below or click on a letter for an alphabetical listing.

Please note: Contact details for authorities are subject to change. We update those listed here as and when authorities notify us that they have changed, but we cannot guarantee that they are accurate at all times. To ensure you are using the most up-to-date contact details, please refer to the relevant authority's website. If you find the details listed are incorrect please let us know. 

Why is the organisation I'm looking for not listed below?

  • It may be a UK public authority. UK public authorities are covered by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA), rather than the Scottish Act. FOIA is enforced by the UK Information Commissioner (ICO).
  • It may be part of a larger authority, which is listed here. For example, Shetland College is not listed here but is covered as part of the University of the Highlands and Islands, or Fife Cultural Trust as part of Fife Council. If in doubt, ask the organisation directly or contact us for help.
  • The organisation may not be a public authority. For example charities, private companies and a range of arm's length bodies set up by authorities to deliver services are not covered by FOI.
