I am delighted to introduce the Third Sector Interface Outcome Framework in my role as Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Communities.
This document highlights the value of collaborative working, with involvement from Third Sector Interfaces, Evaluation Support Scotland and the Scottish Government. I would like to thank all partners involved in shaping this work.
I welcome the possibilities that this framework presents. TSIs provide a rich source of knowledge on third sector issues and perspectives that can feed into both local and national policy. This framework will allow TSIs to continue to do this, whilst affording flexibility to respond to local need and pressures.
We want TSIs to be forces for change within Scotland's communities, supporting and driving a dynamic, flourishing third sector that has a vital role to play in progressing national outcomes and realising Ministers' ambitions for people and communities across Scotland.
I look forward to working together on this important agenda.
Aileen Campbell MSP
Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government
