In 2011, the 75th Anniversary of the Saltire Society, The Rt Hon Lord Cullen of Whitekirk was asked to carry out a strategic review of the Saltire Society. 


I have pleasure in submitting to Council the Report of the Saltire Commission in response to our remit to carry of a strategic review of the Saltire Society. The Report contains 24 recommendations for this purpose.

I would like to express my warmest thanks to the other members of the Commission for readily responding to the invitation to take part in its work, and for contributing so positively to its discussions and the Report.

We would not have made the recommendations in our report if we had not been convinced that there is an important and distinctive role for the Society. However, we have come to the unanimous conclusion that to achieve this demands fundamental, decisive and sustained change in key aspects of the Society’s activity and organisation.
