Visit the Gathering

We can’t wait to welcome you to Scotland’s biggest celebration of the voluntary sector at Edinburgh’s EICC on 7 and 8 November. At the Gathering you’ll have the chance to learn, network, showcase your work and be inspired! 

The Gathering is free to attend and everyone is welcome! To make the most of the buzz on the day and all our networking opportunities, we hope that you'll be able to join us in person.

While we won’t be running the Gathering as a fully hybrid event due to the scale of our programme, this year we will be providing online access to our most popular events and sessions to make sure that as many people as possible can access our event content and insights.

We understand that not everyone will be able to come along on the day, but hope our online sessions will help everyone feel a part of the Gathering. More information will be available when we launch our full programme later in the year!

We’ll be opening pre-registration in July, so make sure you become an SCVO member to be the first to hear when you can pre-register. By pre-registering to visit the Gathering, you will receive exclusive Gathering news, be the first to see our programme of activities and you'll have the chance to book your free event places before anyone else!
