We know that being a third sector leader can be lonely, that's why ACOSVO aims to bring together peers and provide a space in which to share best practice, learn from each other and talk openly in a safe environment.

By offering a wide range of personal and professional development opportunities, topical events and relevant member benefits, we’re here to support, inspire and strengthen leaders.

We’re Adjusting Prices from April 2018, please click here for more information about these changes.
