AVA Logo

Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action’s role is to understand, communicate with, and represent the interests of the voluntary sector locally. We aim to build on the strong foundations of local organisations - working together to provide a single point of access where community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, social enterprises, co-operatives and individual volunteers that make up Aberdeenshire’s diverse and vibrant Third Sector can find the support and advice they need.

As one of 32 ‘Third Sector Interfaces’ or ‘TSIs’ across the whole of Scotland, AVA offers services in four key areas:

  • Supporting volunteering
  • Supporting local and national organisations that operate and deliver services within Aberdeenshire
  • Promoting Social Enterprise and helping it to develop and flourish
  • Providing an active and informed connection between Aberdeenshire’s Third Sector and the various Statutory Agencies and Public Service Providers around the Community Planning table.
