Policy Forum

The Policy Forum is 11070202_10153188042493373_6384107942695547862_na crucial instrument for shaping the Partnership’s agenda. For Policy Forum events, the Partnership invites stakeholders to discussions about mutual interests, salient issues and the Partnership’s current and future activities. The discussants at these regular meetings come from a wide range of public, private and voluntary bodies and challenge existing ideas and policies and think ‘outside the box’ of tested and failing policy approaches. Lastly, the Policy Forum feeds into Oxfam Scotland’s agenda.
