Argyll and Bute TSI work with the third sector across this vast and beautiful area of Western Scotland to provide a central source of knowledge about the Third Sector locally, local and national policy and how it might affect local third sector organisations, communities and citizens, and how the third sector can contribute to those agendas.

Funded by the Scottish Government, Argyll and Bute TSI strives to ensure a strong third sector voice at a strategic level within local and national planning structures and provide leadership, vision and coordination to the local third sector to better respond to local priorities, including through partnership and collaboration.

As the voice of the third sector across Argyll and Bute, the TSI brings the sector together to fight for funding and legislation. They provide support and development which helps third sector organisations and communities across the region become more resilient and achieve their goals.
