The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations is the membership organisation for Scotland’s charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises.
SCVO works in partnership with the voluntary sector to advance our shared values and interests. We have over 1,800 members who range from grassroots groups to Scotland-wide organisations and intermediary bodies.
Through lobbying and campaigning SCVO works to advance the interests of our members and the people and communities that they support. We also provide services that help charities and third sector organisations across Scotland focus on what they do best, whether that’s supporting the most vulnerable people in our communities or conducting cutting edge research. From providing a free information service offering support on all aspects of setting up and running a charity to creating thousands of jobs for young people in charities across Scotland, SCVO’s services are there to make a real difference.
