The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO)

SCVO are leading Scotland’s movement to help people develop basic digital skills. They undertook work to:

  • reach those individuals missing out on the benefits of being online in order to build their confidence and skills;
  • encourage the third sector to better understand and develop the skills to take advantage of the opportunities presented by new technology and the internet; and
  • support collaboration across the public, private and third sectors to address these issues.

They can help you by:

  • supporting knowledge sharing through their OneDigital Meetups
  • offering you access to digital platforms to find relevant stories (Good HQ), funding (Funding Scotland) and promote job opportunities (Goodmoves)
