The Gathering is a free annual event organised by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO).

It’s a place for people from the third sector to network, showcase their work and learn from each other. You will be reminded that you face the same issues as others, and you will find solutions that are right for you. 

Whether its funding, employability or health and wellbeing, there are opportunities to listen, learn and be heard. There’s a busy exhibition and marketplace with over 100 exhibitors and a packed events programme with more than 60 workshops, seminars and training sessions.

Since launching in 2004 The Gathering has:

Who is it for?
