1. Purpose

This note is supplementary to the guidance on preparing a Strategic (Commissioning) Plan[1].

This note makes clear the Scottish Government's intention that Third Sector Interfaces (TSI's) have a key role as advocates of the third sector, in relation to the role of the third sector and integration of health and social care, as set out in the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014. Building on the work of TSI's to provide a catalyst to the Scottish Government's ambitions for the third sector to play a greater role in public service reform, not least in planning, design and delivery of services, TSIs are positioned to act as the conduit for the third sector in relation to integration activities.
