Created: 21 January 2016
The Third Sector Forum is an independent network of Third Sector groups, organised and chaired by VAO. The Forum provides a co-ordinated voice for Orkney’s third sector, allowing all of us to have a stronger influence in the issues that affect groups in Orkney.
There is a clear link with the Orkney Partnership Board (OPB) through which issues of importance to the sector can be raised and discussed and, crucially, third sector activity recognised and included in the Orkney Community Plan.
The Third Sector Forum
• shares information and good practice
• identifies needs and learn from each other
• acts as a conduit for information to and from the sector
• helps lobby, both locally and nationally, on issues that affect the sector
We're always keen to welcome new members to the Forum - you don't have to be a member of VAO to join - just come along to the next meeting, or contact us
for more information.
