Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs)
The TSIs are part of a wider network called TSI Scotland Network which is made up of 32 partnerships and ‘single door’ TSIs who work across communities of Scotland to support the third sector on the ground.
Together they aim to support Scottish Government and influence critical thinking and future policy development for the third sector including charities, development trusts, community and voluntary groups, social enterprises and volunteering. TSI Scotland Network works collaboratively with a wide number of intermediary bodies for the third sector including SCVO, DTSA, Volunteering Scotland and Social Enterprise Scotland.
Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface (CTSI), Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise & CVS Falkirk
The TSIs in Forth Valley are all ‘single door’ access points for a wide range of support and services for charitable organisations, community and voluntary action groups, volunteering and social enterprise in their local authority areas.
Our goal is to provide help and advice on running or starting any type of charitable, social enterprise or voluntary group, as well as volunteering and community work. We act as a one-stop-shop for all issues related to community development, governance, funding advice, community health information and volunteering.
The TSIs also act as a strategic voice of the third sector at community planning partnership meetings and on the Health and Social Care Integration Joint Board and more widely within business forums, to ensure representation for member organisations is informed and valued.
We also offer other services to the third sector, including e-bulletins, a Forth Valley third sector annual conference, events and relevant training.
