Support and Advisory Service

The EAUC-Scotland’s Sustainability Support and Advisory Service provides affordable, tailored, one-to-one support for Universities and Colleges.
EAUC-Scotland has been working closely with the sector for a number of years, developing a wealth of knowledge, resources, and contacts. Establishing the Support and Advisory Service means we now have the capacity to support Institutions to deliver individual Projects.
Benefits of delivering your Project through the Support and Advisory Service will:
  • Benefit from EAUC-Scotland’s expertise in interpreting your needs and identifying existing resources which could support you
  • Be reassured that a staff member or Partner with proven skill and sector experience will be delivering your Project
  • Have the security that EAUC-Scotland will manage the Project from the scoping stage, through contracting and delivery, to final completion.
  • Support the generation of knowledge within the sector, as EAUC-Scotland will work to gather case studies and resources and share these widely to benefit future Projects
  • Support the EAUC-Scotland Office financially with no additional charges to your Project

Support is delivered by the EAUC-Scotland Team and a trusted team of Support and Advisory Service Partners, who have a range of skills and recent experience of supporting environmental and social sustainability projects within the public sector in Scotland. Support can be either face-to-face (with travel costs chargeable) or virtual.
