What’s included?

GCVS Standard Membership

Join GCVS and help us build a strong voluntary sector in Glasgow to support the needs of our communities. GCVS membership is a clear signal that your organisation believes in:

  • Following good practice in governance and management
  • Working to embed a human rights and equality-led approach
  • Taking action to minimise any negative environmental impact
  • Seeking to collaborate with others for the benefit of the city
  • Treating staff, volunteers and service users fairly and kindly

Our membership programme is open to voluntary organisations, social enterprises, and community groups across the Glasgow region. Becoming a member supports our governance, and membership income helps us support organisations and be a strong voice for the sector.

GCVS Payroll

Our complete end-to-end payroll service which includes making payments directly to your employees’ bank accounts, and dealing with HMRC, pension providers, and other payroll deductions.

Our experienced team will make sure your staff get paid correctly and on-time and save you time and worry in the process. 

Included in Membership Plus is the full service with your staff being paid either monthly or four-weekly.  Organisations that want to pay their staff weekly or fortnightly can still join Membership Plus at an additional charge.

GCVS HR Advice Service

Getting your HR processes right is central to running a successful organisation. Our HR Advice subscription helps you to do that by offering unlimited advice and support enquiries on HR issues (limited to 21 hours per enquiry).

It also includes:

  • Access to our large library of template-style documents, policies, and guidance.
  • Monthly People & Safety Newsletter providing you with service updates, changes to law and best practice
  • Discounts on our per-person training prices
  • Reduced rate Occupational Health Services from our preferred provider.
  • Reduced rate Counselling Services from our preferred provider.
  • 20% discount on all bookings at the GCVS Albany Centre.

Pricing and VAT Exemption

Membership Plus is charged quarterly (every three months) at £315 plus £40 per employee.

Membership Plus is VAT exempt which we think is important as many of our members are unable to reclaim or fully reclaim VAT.

Please be aware that to be compliant with the VAT exemption we are unable to offer the discounts on HR consultancy and our Recruitment Service that are normally included in the HR Advice Service. This is because these are VATable services and we are unable to include discounts on VATable services with a VAT exempt membership. 

Most organisations will be better off with Membership Plus compared to accessing these services separately. There are some circumstances when this won’t be the case and our Membership Officer can talk these through with you.

If you’re interested, please complete our short form and we will get in touch with you.
