That the Parliament welcomes the publication of the Voluntary Action Scotland (VAS) report, The Impact We Make The Potential We Have; understands that this report highlights the impact that third sector interfaces (TSIs) make in communities across the country and their vital role in supporting the third sector; notes the contribution of VAS in supporting, advocating and co-ordinating the 32 TSIs; is encouraged by what it sees as the progress being made by TSIs in supporting the third sector and the potential they demonstrate, and believes that continued support for VAS and TSIs is integral to helping deliver the Scottish Government’s vision for the third sector in Scotland.
