Compact Voice 2017 – A Guide to Edinburgh’s Third Sector and Social Economy
Written by the third sector, Compact Voice 2017 supports partners to understand the sector, taking the first step to successful partnership working.
This report makes vital reading for anyone currently working with the third sector or planning to work with the sector in Edinburgh, giving them an insight into how the sector is made up, what it does, how it organises itself, current issues and challenges it faces going forward.
Today, changes in support for vulnerable people and reduction in public spending continue to increase in its severity, and there is greater interest from the Scottish Government and the public sector in Edinburgh about working with the third sector to help meet service demands for the future. There is more discussion about being more creative and utilising the strengths of each partner to develop the best services for the people of Edinburgh.
We hope you find it interesting reading.
