The Association of Charitable Organisations (formerly Association of Charity Officers) was founded in 1946 and is the national UK umbrella body for Trusts and Foundations that give grants and welfare support to individuals in need.
The funds managed by ACO members are discretionary, and seek to compliment and
enhance welfare support provided by local and central government. Our members operate
in the UK and across the globe. Over the last few years many funds have reviewed
their operations, researching patterns of need and developing more strategic
programmes of assistance.
ACO provides support to its members through:
Grant Making Forum South and Under Fives meetings
All meetings are held at the British Dental Association, 64 Wimpole Street, London W1G 8YS from 11am– 1pm.
All GMF meetings are followed at 1.30– 3.30pm by the ever popular Under Fives meeting for solo workers and members of small teams.
We are grateful to BDABF for supporting these events.
