Public Affairs Co-operative, Scotland’s first ethical public affairs company, this week joins other companies such as Royal Bank of Scotland Group and Tods Murray Solicitors in becoming an official strategic partner of the representative organisation for charity leaders, Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations (ACOSVO).
The strategic partnership will see Public Affairs Co-op able to offer ACOSVO members exclusive discounts and training sessions, and work together on events of benefit to the wider sector, including an upcoming Third Sector Question Time event on the Scottish independence referendum.
Welcoming the partnership, Public Affairs Co-operative Director, Neil Cuthbert, said: “As an ethical public affairs company, this kind of partnership is one of the ways we can offer a benefit to charitable organisations and good causes. We’re very much looking forward to working closely with ACOSVO over the coming months.”
Pat Armstrong, Chief Executive of ACOSVO, added: “ACOSVO works with over 300 Third Sector leaders across Scotland, supporting them through an underpinning ethos of peer support, good practice sharing and leadership development. Public affairs is an increasingly topical area for third sector leaders and we are delighted to be welcoming Public Affairs Co-op as a Strategic Partner and an ethical public affairs company with a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field”.
Members of ACOSVO will be eligible for a 30% discount on Public Affairs Co-op services.
