Big Aberdeen Action and You

Big Aberdeen’s aims are summed up in its strapline to encourage Aberdeen to ‘Connect, Collaborate, Challenge and Change’ across the sectors.

Below are the ways that, at this next stage of Big Aberdeen, you can “Connect Collaborate Challenge and Change” – whoever you are:

  3. Join the free Big Aberdeen Network and connect to businesses, services for your clients, funders, volunteers, volunteering or placement opportunities and more.
