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 Aviva Community Fund supports projects that are fighting climate change and building stronger, more resilient communities across the UK and are investing in two key areas:

  • Climate Action: Promoting healthy, thriving communities by preventing, preparing for and protecting against the impacts of climate change
  • Financial Wellbeing: Helping people take control of their wellbeing by giving them the tools to be more financially independent and ready for anything

Any projects submitted should aim to:

  • develop a new approach, product or technology; or
  • implement a new initiative or pilot a new scheme; or
  • expand existing services to a new area or beneficiary group; or
  • adapt services to meet today's needs without compromising those of future generations

If your Climate Action project is focused on action for nature you may be eligible for addition funding through the Save Our Wild Isles Community Fund. You must be working towards:

  1. Nature restoration
  2. Nature connectedness and pro-environmental behaviours
  3. Community cohesion and connection.
