Ruchir Shah

Ruchir is head of the policy department at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations. He helps facilitate policy ideas in and on the sector, and helps communicate these to policy makers in Parliament, government and wider civil society.

Ruchir also ensures that third sector policy is rooted in robust research and a growing evidence base. He was responsible for leading the Civil Society Index for Scotland, the Lead Group ‘futures’ thinking initiative for the third sector, and was editor of View magazine bringing policy insights from civil society to the big issues facing Scotland.

Formerly, Ruchir was SCVO’s Research Officer and established the statistical profile for Scotland’s third sector now used widely by the sector, in government and in academia at Scotland and UK level. He is also a board member of Jubilee Scotland. Ruchir represents SCVO as a co-opted member of the management committee for the Charity Tax Group.
