SCVO works in partnership with the voluntary sector to advance our shared values and interests.  We have over 1300  members who range from individuals and grassroots groups, to Scotland-wide organisations & intermediary bodies.  Through lobbying & campaigning SCVO works to advance the interests of our members and the people and communities  that they support.
