About the Team

GCVS have been providing operational support to voluntary sector employers for over 20 years.

Our People & Safety Services Manager, Natasha, brings years of experience in providing health and safety advice to third sector organisations, having completed qualifications and courses with The Institute of Occupational Health & Safety and the UK Asbestos Training Association. She is also a certified fire warden.

Cam Pollock, H&S Service Advisor, joined the team in April 2021 to support third sector organisations throughout Scotland with a variety of training sessions and has developed a Health & Safety Checklist which can be used to highlight any areas which would benefit from some professional input.

Our service is supported by Amalgamate Safety Risk Management who designed our Health & Safety Management System.

The service also has the benefit of part time administration support.
