Support & advice

aren't alone

Being a CEO can sometimes feel like a lonely and difficult experience. We're here to help you when you need it most by providing confidential advice and support.

As a busy CEO it’s hard to know where to turn to for good advice and to share the load, no matter what you are facing we are here for you. Reach out to our advice and support team with any questions you may have, they are here to listen and support you. If they can’t help directly, they’ll point you in the right direction from within ACEVO’s resources, an expert partner or another member. For full (CEO) members only.

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.

If you need support preparing for a challenging meeting, be it with your board, team or speaking at a conference, you can get up to one hour of free advice from Martin Farrell, a coach and facilitator with extensive experience in the civil society sector. 

Our corporate partners offer 1-2-1 advice for our members across a number of areas, from recruitment to digital, employment law to health and safety. For a list of free advice and support offered by our partners, please check this page.
