Since 2008, Inspiring Scotland brings together people, communities, organisations and government to drive social change and transform lives.

Its work includes providing practical resources, funding and support to disadvantaged individuals, community groups and projects. 

We take a closer look at the different ways Inspiring Scotland could help your voluntary group . . .


Inspiring Scotland works with a range of partners to raise funds and distribute this money to the communities that need it most. There are a number of thematic funds available through Inspiring Scotland and partners, which you can read about here.

Pro-bono support

Inspiring Scotland has a network of pro-bono volunteers that it matches up with charities and voluntary organisations that are looking for some extra support and expert advice. These volunteers include lawyers, business managers, accountants, HR professionals, photographers, leadership coaches, marketing specialists, and much more. Find out more about this fantastic resource and how to make use of it here.

Advice and guidance

Inspiring Scotland offers a Support & Advice consultancy service for charities that find themselves in challenging times. This is led by in-house staff with experience in third, private and public sectors. Read more about this service and how you can sign up here
