SCVO Gathering 2022

Changes took part in the SCVO Gathering 2022.

We took part in the largest voluntary sector event in the UK, SCVO (Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations) gathering in Glasgow.

It was a great opportunity to meet other voluntary organisations and learn from each other.

Our project development coordinator Kelly spotted Changes on the SCVO Gathering wall of supporters.

SCVO Gathering 2022 day 1: Lead by example

Key take aways from day one of the SCVO Gathering 2022 event were:

The importance of sleep

Sleep Scotland talked about the importance of healthy sleep, coupled with what happens in our sleep and tips on better quality sleep. It was interesting to learn the cost of sleep per employee on average for employers.

Conversation Café

We were grateful to experience a snippet of how a Recovery Conversation Café works with Scottish Recovery Network. A Recovery Conversation Café helps you to engage with people in a meaningful way to find out what is important to them. 

Something we will most definitely be taking forward to help shape our own services, particularly offering a space for peoples voices to be heard.

What effective leaders should do to empower staff

Our final session of the SCVO Gathering 2022 was with Social Enterprise Academy Scotland. They provide transformational learning as well as development programmes. It was a fantastic interactive session about what effective leaders should do to empower staff to fulfil a shared vision (and a reminder on how easily communication can breakdown).

Additionally, we got to play with lego!

SCVO Gathering 2022 was engaging, informative and motivational. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to meet our colleagues from other voluntary organisations. We hope to see you all next time!
