Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector (GCVS)
About Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector
GCVS is a dynamic and forward-thinking voluntary sector development agency which provides information, advice, training and practical, professional support to 1,000 voluntary and community groups in Glasgow. We coordinate the voluntary sector input to policy and planning, and work in strategic partnerships with all the major players in regeneration, health, learning and economic development within Glasgow. We have IIP status; we offer our staff excellent opportunities for professional development; and we promote work-life balance initiatives.
GCVS, a membership organisation, is the main development agency and advocate for voluntary and community organisations in Glasgow and is one of the largest Councils for the Voluntary Sector in the UK. We are also one of four key partners that form Glasgow's Third Sector Interface. The interface is the partnership that supports and represents the third sector in Glasgow and through which the Scottish Government engages with the third sector.
