The Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) supports and promotes voluntary and community groups and volunteers.

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

It is chaired by the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children and is made up of representatives of third sector networks working across 25 areas of third sector activity along with the Chief Executive of Wales Council Voluntary Action.

The main purpose of the Third Sector Partnership Council is to make sure that the principles set out in the Third Sector Scheme are put into practice. It also provides an opportunity for the sector to raise issues of interest or concern. It generally does not discuss issues that relate to only one area of interest (these can be taken up through biannual ministerial meetings) and as a national body it is concerned with issues affecting all of Wales.
