From June 30th 2021, ACVO are pleased to offer a year’s free membership to existing and new members. This offer is valid until the end of 2021, and your full year’s membership runs from when you sign up.

We are doing this as a way to say thank you and as an acknowledgement of the difficult year that third sector organisations have had coping with the pandemic. Your work and the impact that you have are what has helped hold people and communities together over the last 16 months.

Kindness, joint working, flexibility of delivery and innovation have been hallmarks of the work we have seen from our sector across Aberdeen. We want to continue to share the stories of the work you are doing, and how we can support you to do it.

-Maggie Hepburn, Chief Executive of ACVO TSI

Why should your organisation become a member of ACVO?

ACVO’s job is to support, represent and advocate for the Third Sector in the City of Aberdeen. Your organisation can help us to get better at that by becoming an ACVO member.

The more members that ACVO has, the more representative of the Sector we are.

The more members, the more clout we have in advocating for you and representing your views to public and private sectors alike.

Becoming an ACVO member is a good way to ensure that the services ACVO provides are the ones valued by its members and meeting their needs.

If ACVO has helped you, help ACVO in return by becoming a member and helping us to do the best job we can do for you and the Third Sector as a whole.
