SRA Scotland

SRA Scotland is made up of SRA members from the region. We meet regularly to plan events and catch up with what’s going on in the SRA and elsewhere in social research.  We host events throughout the year for social researchers in the area.

Get in touch with us, we'd love to hear from you.
