Supporting Scotland’s vibrant voluntary sector

Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations is the membership organisation for Scotland's charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. Charity registered in Scotland SC003558. Registered office Mansfield Traquair Centre, 15 Mansfield Place, Edinburgh EH3 6BB.


The Trust looks after a charitable fund from which grants to organisations working with young people in the Edinburgh and Lothian area.

From April 2021 to the end of 2022, an emphasis will be placed upon supporting families and early years provision, health and wellbeing initiatives for families and children, and overcoming the many opportunity gaps arising from the pandemic affecting low-income households.

The Trust’s traditional focus on young people’s homelessness and employment support is not abandoned, but will have a lower priority in this period. Additional grant support may also be made available for established organisations suffering income reduction or service provision difficulties as a result of pandemic restrictions.
