Third Sector Network Meetings
Cowal and Bute’s Third Sector Network (TSN) meetings are held quarterly and aim to provide a collective voice in the Third Sector, to increase the Sectors input in key areas of public policy and planning, and to support Cowal and Bute’s vibrant third sector, which includes voluntary organisations, charities, groups and social enterprises.
Every independent Third Sector organisation in Cowal and Bute is considered to be part of the Network; we want to ensure that the Network is involved in strategic discussions with public sector partners. We want to be actively involved in shaping agendas rather than reacting to them. We hope it will be a connecting point for dialogue, discussion, networking and influence, so that the Third Sector can better shape planning and decision-making in the future.
