March 2021

ACOSVO, ACEVO and CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) have teamed up again to conduct the annual CEO Pay and Equalities Survey. For over 10 years, your responses to this survey have allowed the sector to better understand pay and diversity at senior levels.


Your responses to this survey have allowed us to provide the sector with a full, up-to-date picture of pay and reward for its chief executives, as well as an understanding of diversity and equality at this senior level.


Ian's family have set up this Memorial Grove to continue his passion for Scotland's native woodlands.


ACOSVO have supported 60 trees to be planted, one for each year of Ian's life. The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.


If you would like to contribute, please visit Ian Findlay's Trees for Life page here.
