We have a Business Skilled Volunteer project.  We have an Affiliation scheme for those professionals and others who want to do business with the sector.  This is by invitation and application.  We run the ACVO Awards which provide recognition of Friends of The Third Sector, Active Citizens etc, including awards for private businesses.  We work with the independent care sector in relation to Reshaping Care for Older People.

We are a member of Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce and participate in its Third Sector Network.

We are always interested in exploring with the business community ways of making links that work for your business and for our third sector clients.

Our teams provide a range of services and activities to help third sector organisations engage with the private sector – whether to trade goods and services as a social enterprise, recruit employee volunteers, raise funds or develop skills.
