New 1-2-1 support from our Information Services team

Our Information Service has always provided help, guidance, and support to third sector organisations in Scotland. This includes a free enquiry service, online guidance, toolkits and webinars.

For SCVO members with an annual income of under £500,000, the service also includes access to free legal advice, and free Tax or VAT advice from professional advisers.

More support for your organisation

Now, SCVO members can get more in depth 1-2-1 support from our information officers on any aspect of running a third sector organisation, including:

  • Board development
  • Changing your legal form
  • Charity Law
  • Constitutions
  • Governance
  • Data Protection
  • Trustee roles and responsibilities

Our support can be practical, or we can be a ‘critical friend’ – an independent, additional source of knowledge available for your organisation. Our information officers have a combined experience of more than 40 years of helping voluntary sector organisations, meaning they have a wealth of knowledge which our members can benefit from.

How to book a 1-2-1 session

Our 1-2-1 support sessions are exclusively for SCVO members. To book a session, visit this page and make sure you are signed in to your My SCVO account. We hope to hear from you soon!
