The Third Sector Partnership Council (TSPC) is a key mechanism for the third sector to talk to, and hear from, Welsh Government. 

TPSC  is chaired by the Minister responsible for the Third Sector Scheme and is made up of  representatives of third sector networks working across 25 areas of third sector activity along with the Chief Executive Officer of Wales Council Voluntary Action.

The Third Sector Partnership Council will:

  • consider issues that relate to the strategic objectives and functions of the Welsh Government and which engage the interests of the Third Sector, and make recommendations to the Welsh Government
  • agree, monitor and review the Framework for Engagement
  • advise on the implementation, monitoring and review of the Third Sector Scheme including establishing indicators by which the Scheme shall be evaluated;
  • facilitate consultation with relevant Third Sector organisations and Public Sector bodies on the Scheme’s implementation, operation and review;
  • assist in arrangements for reviewing the Scheme from time to time.
