About the Network
The Councils for Voluntary Service (CVS) Network consists of 55 independent organisations that provide a range of development and support services to the voluntary sector in Scotland.
The Network delivers these services via their Core Activities Framework which focuses on 6 key areas:
Understanding the voluntary sector
Communicating with the voluntary sector
Representing the interests of the voluntary sector
Providing support services
Promoting good practice
Growing the sector
CVS activity is supported by the Scottish Executive and local authorities, as well as by trading income and funding from a wide range of sources. From April 2004, the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) has had direct responsibility for the development and co-ordination of the Network.
