GCVS Membership

Become a GCVS member and help us build a strong voluntary sector in Glasgow, to support the needs of our communities.

Our values are to be innovative, driven and brave in the work that we do, aiming to achieve the best for the city, while demonstrating integrity, kindness and respect in how we treat people. Do you share these values and want to join us?


Our membership programme is open to voluntary organisations, social enterprises and community groups across Glasgow and the wider community. Becoming a member not only helps us support your work, it also supports GCVS to be a strong voice for the sector. While many of our services and training programmes are free, becoming a member can provide discounts on our paid services as well as other benefits, including being part of our community. If you have any questions, please get in touch with the team to discuss your needs.

What are the options?

Standard Membership – For organisations that believe in what we do and want to be a part of it.

Membership Plus – For organisations who also want a cost-effective way to access some of our most popular services, including our HR and Payroll Services. This includes use of Groop – essential software that enables you to manage and report activity, communicate with staff, volunteers and members and share information securely.

Associate Membership – For organisations who are outwith the voluntary sector, but who share our values and vision. This option is also for voluntary sector organisations who operate outside the Glasgow City area.
