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 offers grants in two areas: performing arts and conservation.

Their priorities for music, theatre and dance are:

  • Excellence in professional performance
  • The production and performance of new work
  • The development of young, professional artists aged 18 or over.

They support the conservation of historic objects, collections and features of buildings and designed landscapes which are pre-Victorian in date and prefer to give grants to smaller projects, or specific elements of projects, where their contribution can have a greater impact.
