Our team is here to support and advocate for your organisation.

TSI (Perth & Kinross) is here to provide personalised support to third sector organisations while advocating for the sector at a strategic level in local partnerships and beyond.

We come with a range of backgrounds and expertise but are united in our aim to promote an empowered, connected, and resilient voluntary sector.

Our team includes Development Officers working across three themes to meet the needs of charities in Perth and Kinross. Development Officers build relationships with local organisations and stakeholder groups, advance and share knowledge, and advocate for the rights and needs of organisations within their theme.
