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.

Ask the Community

As the sector commits to ‘building back better’, there is an opportunity to shift the dial and give the climate crisis the urgent attention it needs

Our partners complement our existing range of benefits, covering all departments from digital to recruitment. As a member, you have access to free consultations and telephone advice.
