Organised by SCVO, the Gathering is the largest free voluntary sector event in the UK. It's a place for all the amazing people working in the sector to network, showcase what they do and learn from each other and this year, we've changed it up a little bit...
We've introduced the Gathering Extra as an online opportunity to catch up on the bits you missed from the in-person Gathering from the comfort of your own home or office.View programme & book
In 2022, although people enjoyed the chance to get together in-person at the Gathering, it didn’t suit everyone.
Since Covid, and for lots of different reasons, more people want to engage with events online as well as in person and we want to help them do that.
The Gathering Extra is for everyone working in or with the Scottish voluntary sector.
You might decide to join because the in-person event doesn’t work for you, or you might be with us on the 7th/8th November in-person, then catch up online with an event that you missed.
We're preparing the Gathering Extra programme at the moment and will share it later in September. We've selected topics that tend to draw a big crowd and have relevance across the sector.
We’ve also looked for sessions that are being delivered primarily as an input from a stage - the more interactive round-table sessions can’t be recorded as easily.
Working out how to make the Gathering work for an online audience has been something we've thought long and hard about.
We want to make the Gathering accessible for as many people as possible.
