Information sharing session for the Third Sector

About this event

There have been a number of recent developments regarding potential funding for the third sector, so we are calling a Midlothian Third Sector Forum to give local third sector organisations and key partners the opportunity to hear an update.

One key development is that the Midlothian TSI has been awarded £240k by the Scottish Government to pass on to local third sector organisations for work to support adult mental health, and the programme will open at the end of November.

Key things on the agenda will be:

• The Programme for Government and the Budget – implications for the third sector: Lesley Kelly, Midlothian TSI

• Update on the replacement for EU structural funds: Lesley Kelly, Midlothian TSI

• Update on LEADER and the Scottish Rural Parliament: Douglas Westwater, Community Enterprise

• Accelerate – new opportunity for organisations looking to trade: Douglas Westwater, Community Enterprise

• Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund: Natalie Thomson, Midlothian TSI

• Closed session for third sector organisations only – your opportunity to raise issues’
