Our mission is to create a Scotland where everyone can volunteer, more often, and throughout their lives.

We work with partners (individuals, groups and organisations) through actions, initiatives and campaigns, to achieve our mission.

To find out more about partnership opportunities please get in touch with our Partnership and Communications Manager, Margaret Starkie margaret.starkie@volunteerscotland.org.uk

UK Volunteering Forum

The UKVF exists to facilitate collaboration between the four national agencies supporting volunteering across the UK - a devolved matter in each country (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales). These agencies include NCVO, Volunteer Now, Volunteer Scotland and Wales Council for Voluntary Action. Amongst other activities the UKVF aims to create a shared understanding of national strategies and values, to identify and influence UK and international level policy priorities, to support the creation and effective dissemination of UK-wide volunteering research, to support the promotion and access to relevant national quality standards of volunteering practice and continuously improve the volunteer’s experience and to support (which includes identifying and developing) national campaigns which promote volunteers and volunteering UK and internationally. The UKVF meets every 6-8 weeks.
