For the purposes of this policy "the public" is any person or organisation not a Scottish public authority or a commercial organisation. The public included community and voluntary organisations, charities, MSPs and Councillors.
We aim to make the best use our resources to promote access to information rights to those who use, or could use, them. Our aim is to promote rights and help the public make the best use of those rights.
We particularly welcome invitations to speak at events involving members of the community and voluntary organisations, especially where there are large numbers of attendees or many organisations present.
We do not charge and generally meet our own travel costs. We are happy to attend events outside office hours.
