VOCAL provides a welcome and highly valued voice on behalf of cultural and leisure services, which the Scottish Government has found invaluable when progressing a wide range of important, and often complex, policies and initiatives. Being able to work effectively, collaboratively and in partnership with VOCAL has proved essential to developing good working relationships across a range of organisations. The practical and strategic contribution of VOCAL’s membership is consistently of a high quality and has proved very effective in terms of developing constructive and meaningful relationships with local authorities - for the benefit of communities across Scotland.
