Supporting Glasgow’s inspiring voluntary sector
At GCVS, we’re here to support community groups, voluntary organisations, and social enterprises with the help and training they need to succeed. By strengthening Glasgow’s voluntary sector, both citizens and communities can benefit.
Our Sector Development team can support you with resources, training and advice on essential topics for any voluntary organisation such as funding, governance, managing assets and demonstrating your impact. Find out more and get in touch to chat through your needs.
We provide payroll support to hundreds of voluntary organisations each month. Our comprehensive service, includes workplace pensions and can offer various payment frequencies for your staff. Find out more and contact us to discuss your requirements.
Do you need help with the responsibilities of being an employer or managing staff? Few small voluntary organisations can afford to employ an HR specialist so we are here to help. We also support with recruitment, wellbeing and health & safety!
We offer a welcoming venue for meetings, events and conferences in the heart of Glasgow. The Albany has a range of rooms and meeting spaces which are fully equipped to meet your needs, including technology to facilitate hybrid events and affordable catering options. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
Are you, or your team, looking to develop your skills and practice with a nationally recognised qualification? We offer a variety of SVQ awards ranging from Social Services and Healthcare to Business Administration, Management and Community Development. We also run PDAs and short courses. Find out more.
Our teams across GCVS work hard to deliver regular training and support, designed to help upskill those working or volunteering in the sector. For workshops, seminars and tutorials, both in person or online, find out what’s coming up and book your place at any session directly on Eventbrite.
