"Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless." - Sherry Anderson

Aberdeen Volunteer Centre is run by ACVO and its core remit is to recruit volunteers and to promote and support volunteering. In doing this, we seek to provide a wide range of opportunities for volunteers and ensure that both volunteers and organisations as a whole are given appropriate advice and information in relation to volunteering.
