Trustees' Week 2021

The TSI Scotland Network is a body of charities that support the third sector across Scotland. There are 32 TSIs – or Third Sector Interfaces in Scotland, one for each local authority area. Some are partnerships working across large urban and geographical areas, some combine all the functions of the TSIs’ work under one roof.

Our programme of events during Trustees’ Week has been planned by each TSI for their local area, but many of these will be relevant for organisations across Scotland, so anyone is welcome to sign up!

And if you need any 1:1 support, you can get in touch with your local TSI. If you don’t who that is, find them http://destinations.co.uk/privacy-policy/ here.
