Third sector infrastructure: Scottish Government Review
Created: 14/05/2017, Updated: 25/05/2017
The Scottish Government funds more than 60 third sector infrastructure organisations in Scotland and is undertaking a review of these organisations and the support they provide.
FVA is known as a 'Third Sector Interface' or TSI, and is one of those 60+ organisations. There are 31 other TSIs (one in each local authority area in Scotland) and over 30 national infrastructure organisations, including organisations like SCVO, DTAS, Volunteer Scotland and so on. All of these organisations are independent (including FVA!) and must report to the government on performance and impact.
