Third Sector Partnership Council

In Wales the way in which the Welsh Government ( WG ) and the Third Sector work together is quite different to that in England. Here, WG have a statutory duty to work with the Third Sector, as set out in the Third Sector Scheme.

Much of this collaboration is done through the Third Sector Partnership Council ( TSPC ) which is made up of 25 networks representing the key areas of interest of the Third Sector.

Each network has a lead organisation who attends meetings with the Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty and the Minister for Finance on a bi-annual basis.

 

Chwarae Teg act as the network lead for the Employment network, which consists of over 100 organisations.

This network has 2 key functions: To promote and support the role the Third Sector plays in addressing employment issues in Wales, — and — to represent the views and concerns of Third Sector employers.

 

TSPC Employment Network Manifesto

The network is guided by a Manifesto which was compiled in consultation with members. The full Manifesto is available download as PDF. The 5 key areas that the Manifesto covers are:

  1. Tackling in-work poverty.

  2. Addressing barriers to the workplace.

  3. Employment support.

  4. Improving community engagement and partnership working.

  5. Strengthening the third sector and improving its role as an employer.
