About Us.

The Highland Third Sector Interface started work in late 2012 and officially launched early 2013. We are funded by the Scottish Government, among others, and are one of a network of 32 other ‘Third Sector Interfaces’ across Scotland.

What is a TSI?

A Third Sector Interface provides a single point of access for support and advice for the Third Sector within a local area. They have an outcome framework that they have to work within, but how that is done is very much based on local need and diversity within the geography and nature of the Third Sector in that area.
