​Th​e Third Sector Strategy Group is open to all Third Sector organisations across West Lothian. This is your opportunity to:

  • Guide the work of Voluntary Sector Gateway West Lothian
  • Make your collective voice heard by local and national government and by statutory bodies
  • Network with your peers in other organisations

Role of the TSSG:

  • To advise and guide the Gateway about the needs of the sector at national and local policy development level and the delivery of the work plan.
  • To facilitate sector reps at forums representing the sector and not just narrow organisational interests.
  • To facilitate the setting up of appropriate systems for the constituencies of organisations in each thematic/geographic group e.g. children and families, local regeneration planning etc.
  • To facilitate communications both up and down between forums and the sector and within and across the sector.
  • To influence policy and planning nationally across the sector.
  • To act as a ‘sounding board’ to provide advice to the Gateway on its future strategies and plans.
