About us

ACEVO is the UK's largest and most influential network for Charity and Social Enterprise Leaders. 

For nearly 30 years, we have provided support, development and an inspiring, collective campaigning voice for our members across the UK, the leaders of small, community based groups, ambitious medium-sized organisations, and well known, well-loved national and international not-for-profits. Our leaders drive positive change in their organisations and in their communities and we give them a platform to do even more.

We offer our members exclusive access to personal development opportunities and mentoring tailored to senior leadership roles; networking and learning events; bespoke consultancy and solutions that help boost their businesses; and discounted professional services delivered by our partners. Driven by our members' experiences we craft positions on issues of importance to the third sector and our members' work - and together we offer a decisive voice that shapes the agenda on the ground, at the local level and in concert with national media and government. 

ACEVO stands for the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations. Membership is open to charity and social enterprise chief executives, to ambitious senior directors, to chairs and to trustees.
