Review of Local Third Sector Infrastructure in Scotland
Scottish Government recently commissioned an independent evaluation of the Third Sector Interface (TSI) model and Voluntary Action Scotland (VAS). Scottish Government and VAS have agreed that it is crucially important that the local third sector organisations have an opportunity to input their views into the evaluation process. Therefore as part of this evaluation, a feedback session was held at Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire SCIO (VAER) on Monday 15th May 2017. The session was attended by representatives from across the local third sector, the local authority and HSCP, DWP and Scottish Government and was externally facilitated.
The Commission on Parliamentary Reform presented its report to the Scottish Parliament on 20th June 2017.
The University of Stirling are looking for participants who have experience of a health condition or illness, or experience of using health or social care services; those who have a loved one or family member who has had a health condition or illness, or has used health or social care services; those who work in health or social care services, and anyone else with an interest in health and behaviour-related research.
Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire would like to congratulate The Fairweather Drop In Centre for being granted The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.
