Scottish Government Third Sector Interface Evaluation

December 3, 2016

The Scottish Government commissioned Blake Stevenson, in partnership with Arrivo Consulting, to evaluate the role, function and effectiveness of the Third Sector Interface model and Voluntary Action Scotland (VAS), and to explore what the future strategic direction and approach to third sector support in Scotland should be at the local level.

This comprehensive study involved a survey of all 32 TSIs with depth studies in 11 areas and analysis of TSI and VAS performance data and other background information. We conducted a large number of interviews and focus groups including third sector organisations, local strategic partners, VAS internal stakeholders and national stakeholders.

The final report has been well received and can be found here
