Third Sector Strategic Forums


We facilitate 4 Third Sector Strategic Forums/ Networks that connect with our Community Planning structure. These are:

-       Health and Social Care

-       Children, Young People and Families

-       Criminal Justice

-       Perth & Kinross Social Enterprise Network


Our Forums/ Networks meet regularly – some every month, others every quarter – and have wide virtual networks for communication in-between. Strategic Forums offer opportunities for the local third sector to:


-       Have a voice and influence in strategic planning

-       Contribute Third Sector Intelligence and professional knowledge

-       Collaborate on joint action and plans

-       Increase the sharing of resources and knowledge

-       Develop third sector leadership

-       Collaborate around new ideas and innovations

-       Ensure quality services 


PKAVS also facilitates the Perth & Kinross Social Enterprise Network which offers networking and collaboration for social enterprises and is directly connected to our Community Planning Partnership group for Economy and Lifelong Learning. Visit our PKSEN page for more details.
