We will ensure that the Scottish voluntary sector is recognised and resourced for its significant contribution to our society and economy.
- employs over 135,000 people
- works with over 1.2 million volunteers
- is a major provider of public services
- had an annual turnover of over 8.5 billion in 2021.
Precarious funding risks our sector’s contribution and ability to deliver vital services for people and communities across Scotland.
Our sector needs fairer funding to support charities, voluntary groups, and social enterprises.
We will champion longer-term funding and procurement models, processes that are accessible and consistent, unrestricted funding, and investment that keeps pace with inflation and the Living Wage.
