Congratulations to (SVE) for putting on an excellent evening of celebration for the amazing volunteers in Stirling.  It was fantastic to meet the individuals who were behind the applications and to hear from their own words, the difference they make for others, through using their own time and skills.

SVE Membership

To access most of our level 2 and 3 services (see Offers) we ask that organisations apply to become members of SVE and provide the basic information about themselves that will help us deliver the best possible support. 

There are three types of SVE membership:

1. Group Membership
This is open to any Third Sector organisation (community or voluntary group, charity or social enterprise) which operates, wholly or in part, in the Stirling Council area. Only Group Members can vote at General Meetings and together with the Board have a say in the running of the organisation. Group Members will be included in our Milo database and mailing list, and have the option of inclusion in our online database.

To apply for Group Membership, please complete the  form and return it by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by post to 4 King Street, Stirling.

2. Individual Membership
Open to any person who is interested in and who supports the aims and objectives of SVE. An individual member is eligible to be elected or appointed to serve on the Board of Directors.

3. Associate Membership
Associate Membership is for organisations / groups which may not qualify for full Group Membership (for example, because they are outwith our area, or not in the voluntary sector) but which share our aims and objectives and would like to establish a formal connection with us.

To apply for Individual or Associate Membership, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or phone 01786 430000.
