About Us

North West Glasgow Voluntary Sector Network SCIO was created as a response to the need for Voluntary Sector organisations to have a voice when decisions about funding, planning and service delivery are made. We make sure our members’ views, opinions and ideas are heard locally, city wide and where relevant nationally.

The Network is a registered charity, managed by an Executive Committee, who run or work for member organisations. Our membership is open to all voluntary organisations that are based in or deliver services in North West Glasgow.

North West Glasgow Voluntary Sector Network support Voluntary Sector Reps in each ward to represent the issues and successes of voluntary organisations in each of the 8 wards' Glasgow Community Planning Area Partnership meetings. Get to know your area Voluntary Sector Rep
