SUPPORTING UK VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS

SVA was formed in 2005 by a group of 7 Scottish virtual assistants who wanted to improve the reputation of the industry - it quickly mushroomed into the largest organisation for UK based VAs with over 1,800 members. Our aim is to help virtual assistants set up and stay in business by encouraging and supporting one another whilst promoting best practice in the VA industry.

Being run by actual VAs rather than those who get their income from coaching or specialist services, we're able to give real advice about issues that frequently crop up - how to get more virtual assistant clients, what equipment virtual assistants use, how to deal with client issues...
