We believe Scotlandâ€™s voluntary sector has a transformative effect on the lives of those living in Scotland who otherwise may struggle to make the best of their lives due to life circumstances, poverty, or other disadvantages.Â OurÂ aimÂ is to amplify and strengthen the impact of organisationsÂ across civic societyÂ by helpingÂ themÂ build their strength, resilience, and reach.
We do thatÂ throughÂ harnessing the power of private, public, and voluntary sectors.Â Since 2008 Inspiring Scotland has worked towards a Scotland where everyone, no matter where they live, or the circumstances they are born into, is given the chance to enjoy a happy, healthy life free from poverty or disadvantage.
We inspire people, communities, organisations and government to work together to drive social change and transform lives.
