Running Your Organisation

Running a community group, voluntary organisation, charity or social enterprise is rewarding, but it isn’t always easy.  As well as the practicalities of delivering your service there are some core areas that all organisations need to consider in order to be effective and sustainable.  We are here to help with advice, resources and a free training programme .  If you are an existing organisation in Glasgow or are thinking about setting up a new organisation then, please check out our supports, who can attend our sessions or get in touch to arrange an appointment – 0141 332 2444 or email

We have a new GCVS Sector Development Brochure Aug 2021 – please have a look and feel free to share!
