About SCVO

The Gathering 2017

At the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), we love the voluntary sector

As the national membership organisation for charities, voluntary groups and social enterprises, our purpose is to support, promote and develop a confident, sustainable voluntary sector in Scotland.

That’s why we work in partnership with the sector to advance the interests of our 2,000+ members and the people and communities they support, giving the sector a voice at a national level and promoting and supporting innovation and improvement.

We lobby Government on policy issues, create jobs for young people and support organisations to embrace and promote digital skills. We also help with the day-to-day stuff, like affordable office space, discounted training courses, funding opportunities and information and support to help people set up and run their organisations.
