The third sectors’ experience of community planning has been mixed—for many it’s either an unloved entity or an unknown entity.
For Voluntary Action Scotland (VAS) the national network body for Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs), it often feels like an opportunity yet to be realised. And so last year with Dr Oliver Escobar of What Works Scotland we worked with our network to deliberate and shape a new vision. Not a route map or a finished article but a view to help us realise that opportunity.
