We exist to aid the individual citizen and the organisation they choose to invest their energies in. We foster the capacity of local people and communities to bring about change and regeneration through voluntary action.
Our role is to support and facilitate the development of the voluntary sector at a local level. Through this we strengthen the contribution local voluntary organisations make to the economic, social and cultural wellbeing of their community.
ALVO has almost 40 years experience of the management, development, and direction of studies, projects and programmes at local, regional and national levels, and has been responsible for developing over £18 million of inward investment to the local sector. In 2010 ALVO stopped receiving government grant to pursue this work, following its decision not to become part of the new Scottish Interface network, and is now independently pursuing the objects it began with in 1974.
