The Gannochy Trust and PKAVS Third Sector Interface worked together to offer three events attended by over 100 representatives of the Perth and Kinross third sector. We listened and learned as participants shared their views on the Strengths and Challenges of the sector. They also provided us with some creative thoughts on the Change that they wanted to see happen.
Enthusiasm and pride in the strengths of the third sector was palpable throughout the events and featured heavily in each of the three sessions. Delegates willingly shared anecdotes about their organisations, how they had adapted, responded to need, and achieved unimaginable levels of flexibility to meet new, emerging, and unmet needs. They reported an increase in partnership working and in collaborating with others. Willingness to adapt to online working and use of new IT support served as key enablers; in some cases, increasing an organisation’s ability to engage with communities, foster a positive reputation and build trusting relationships.
