Partners

If your organisation is working with people that would benefit from volunteering, then we can help in a variety of ways.

If you’d like to know more about Glasgow’s Strategic Volunteering Framework, we have key documents and updates available.

Volunteer Glasgow is a partner in Glasgow’s Third Sector Interface, funded since April 2011 by Scottish Government to provide voluntary/charity/social enterprise organisations and groups with key support services and to help Glasgow’s Third Sector Forum represent the sector in its work with public and private sector partners and the Community Planning Partnership.

We are working with a wide range of partners on the volunteering elements of the Poverty Leadership Panel‘s Action Plan for Change.
