About us

Passionate about Scotland’s voluntary sector

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) is the national membership organisation for the voluntary sector.

Along with our community of 2,000+ members, we believe that charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups make Scotland a better place.

We support the sector to achieve its ambitions through delivering services, by giving the sector a voice at a national level and by championing innovation and improvement.

For example, 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.
