Third Sector Collaboration Week

Third Sector Collaboration Week was held between 30th August and 3rd September 2021, aiming to raise awareness of collaboration, and the different methodologies or approaches that can be used to develop new partnerships.  

The week also demonstrated the power of networking as well as how collaboration can lead to greater innovation. 

Each day of the week focused on how collaboration can deliver on key Scottish Government policy areas. These include: Public Procurement; Community Wealth Building; Climate Action; International; and Covid Recovery.
