Scottish Volunteering Forum

The Scottish Volunteering Forum is a group of organisations passionate about increasing volunteering. 

Our fundamental principle is working collaboratively for the overall benefit of volunteering in Scotland

Key aims:

  1. To enable and encourage more people to get involved in volunteering to ensure equality of opportunity for all
  2. To support quality volunteering experiences, resulting in more people continuing to volunteer
  3. To lead and enable the realisation of the benefits of volunteering to individuals, organisations and Scottish society.
  4. Gain consensus of the key strategic pillars that will support the overall aims including a commitment to complement each other
