Aberdeenshire Third Sector Interface Amalgamation
The 3 partners of the Aberdeenshire Voluntary
Action (AVA) Partnership have formed a Steering Group to deliver an amalgamated, single Third Sector Interface (TSI) for Aberdeenshire.
CVS Aberdeenshire Central and South, Bridge CVS and Volunteer Centre Aberdeenshire will come together to form a new charitable
organisation that will promote, support and develop the third sector, social enterprise and volunteering across Aberdeenshire.
This amalgamation will take place during 2014 and is being supported
by Scottish Government and Aberdeenshire Council. The Steering Group overseeing this process consists of the Chairpersons
from each of the AVA partner organisations and is chaired by an independent member, Ken Milroy, founder and CEO of Aberdeen
Foyer. The Steering Group has commissioned Avanté Consulting to advise and help manage the significant changes
required. Avanté Consulting are leading public policy consultants with extensive experience across private and
third sectors in Scotland.
Steering Group was formed on 16 May, attended by the CEOs of the AVA partners and has developed an action plan which includes
stakeholder engagement, independent recruitment of a new Board and independent recruitment of the CEO for the new organisation.
Third sector organisations operating in the Shire, along with Community Planning Partners, will be kept informed and involved
at various stages during the process to ensure the new TSI is robust, credible and will deliver for the Shire.
