Third Sector PK Newsletter: July 2024

Here’s our most recent newsletter for the voluntary sector in Perth & Kinross. Join today for third sector news and the latest funding, development and engagement opportunities.

Good morning,

In the spring, Scottish Government announced another round of funding for mental health projects. This includes the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund for Adults, which the TSI will be distributing in Perth & Kinross. 

In a recent blog post, we discuss the past success of this funding programme and highlight some resources for organisations to consider before applying. Stay tuned for an announcement from us in the autumn when applications open.

Secondly, are you a volunteer manager looking to recruit more young volunteers? If so, you can join like-minded professionals at our next Volunteer Managers Forum and delve into the topic of youth volunteering. 

There’s still time to register for next week’s learning and networking event: 
Register for the Volunteer Managers Forum: Youth Volunteering on 11 July 
That’s all from us, but keep reading for some great opportunities from across the sector.
