ACEVO Community

More than a membership organisation, we are a community of civil society leaders and we know the importance of peer support and advice. Our members have access to an online hub, where they ask and offer advice as well as start and engage in conversations on any relevant topics. It’s our own social media, a safety net you can rely on.
