Policy & Public Affairs Officer

Policy and Campaigns
I am the SCVO policy lead for regulation, making sure the sector’s voice is heard loud and clear when it comes to the likes of Charity Law, the Lobbying Act, and Freedom of Information legislation. I also work with colleagues within SCVO’s funding & procurement team. If you're interested in getting involved in our work on regulation, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
