Our Vision & Values

We use the law to defend and extend people's rights. We work in partnership with like-minded organisations who share our vision of a fairer and more equal Scotland.

Everything we do is driven by our core values:

  • We bring expert legal skills and the expertise of clients and others with direct experience of an issue to all our work.
  • We are inclusive, and the way we communicate and deliver our services is tailored for our clients.
  • We are strategic and find new ways to use the law to increase social justice.
  • We build relationships of trust with our clients and partners*, and make principled decisions about what we do, and how we do it.

*We are currently delivering projects with over 30 organisations in Scotland, UK, Europe and internationally. See Our Partners for a full list of our partner organisations.
