ACOSVO has recently completed a review of the Statutory & Non Statutory benefits we give our staff. 

In order to benchmark ourselves more widely across the Sector we invited members to join us in compiling the data.

No it's not an April fools joke. Moving with digital times, and hoping to alleviate some of the masses of paperwork for our poor Office & Finance Manager, from April 1st 2017 ACOSVO will no longer be accepting invoice requests for our events programme.

All event bookings will need to be made by credit or debit card.

We appreciate your understanding.


This note invites bids from 3rd sector organisations in Scotland for very short sharp projects (up to 10 person days) where statistical or analytical skills could make a difference to your organisation. The way this would work is individuals or small groups of Scottish Government analysts (one or two people) act as an analytical consultancy to help solve problems in your organisation and would be delivered at no cost to you.

ACOSVO Members Day is back and it's bigger and better than ever.

Join ACOSVO and your fellow third sector leaders at our Members Day and Networking Drinks Reception kindly supported by Standard Life on the afternoon of 21st March, Edinburgh.

The Scottish Government has approached ACOSVO to invite third sector leaders to participate in the next round of the SG Digital Champions development programme.

ACOSVO is delighted to announce that it has achieved the prestigious Investors in People (IIP) Silver Award in its first assessment against the new 6th Generation Framework.  

Scotland’s only cross sectoral Leadership Exchange Programme has been recognised by The 2016 Scottish Public Service Awards. Shortlisted in the category of Employee Development and Skills, the awards, supported by the Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament, aim to celebrate outstanding achievements within Scotland's civic landscape and give recognition to the work that goes on - sometimes behind the scenes and often in difficult circumstances - to support the governance of Scotland.

ACOSVO are delighted to once again be partners with ACEVO, CO3 and CAF in the generation of what is the best known UK third sector Chief Officer and Senior Staff ‘Pay and Equalities Survey’.
