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

This workshop looks at the CEO/chair relationship from both perspectives. It’s an opportunity to take stock of and review how you work together.

What ACEVO does and how it supports leaders of charities and social enterprises in England and Wales.

Thank you so much for your support over the last few weeks. You have really helped me to see things in a different way. I am so pleased that I joined ACEVO.

I have really valued the ACEVO website and the community hub.... I always seem to find something within the ACEVO community that picks me up again. Membership has been so valuable.
