Third Sector Forum

Third Sector Participation in Community Planning and Community Fund Forum

Third Sector Forums are being re-introduced by TSI Borders. The aim of thematic forums is to support our sector by developing a strong voice with key third sector organisations and to shape local planning and resources.

The most recent forum was held in St Boswells last week. Look out for notifications and booking details of future dates due to be held on November 21st 2019 and January 16th 2020. 

Scottish Borders Council has commissioned an independent review of their support to local communities in terms of:

• the management of the Community Fund for local activity and
• the Area Partnership Forums which aim to involve communities in discussion of local issues and decisions.

This review is being carried out by Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC). The TSI will be submitting a response to the consultation.

Please come along to future events and help inform our TSI response.
