Read on to learn more about Gisele and her hopes for the future of the TSI.

Hi Gisele, can you tell us a little more about your role with PKAVS?

I support third-sector organisations across Perth and Kinross with capacity building. That might include providing guidance and support with their governance, policies and procedures.
I also work a lot with underrepresented groups on improving equality initiatives and I draw on my training and voluntary work in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion to support groups in this area.

What’s your background and how did you come to work with PKAVS?

I’ve worked in charities a lot before, developing and delivering services as a development officer as well as volunteer management and coordination for a variety of organisations from food delivery to caring for people living with dementia.
I think all of my previous experiences feed well into my current role as it’s given me a deep understanding of how charities and third-sector organisations work and, therefore, how we can best help them.

What is something that you really love about your job?

I enjoy working with the groups I support and spending time with people. It’s really rewarding to be able to help people achieve their goals.

What are the main challenges facing the third sector in Perth and Kinross at the moment?

I think the biggest thing is competing for funding. There are a lot of financial constraints on people due to the cost of living, which has put real pressure on services.

What’s your favourite way to have downtime away from work?

I love running, reading and listening to music.

What’s your favourite day of the week? Why?

It’s maybe a cliche to say but I do love weekends!

What project or goal would you love to work towards with PKAVS in the next year – five years?

To link with as many groups as possible and make sure that all their needs are being met in any way that we can help them, and to raise our profile so people know we’re here for free support.
