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 Local Government and
Public Services and is made up of representatives of third sector
networks working across 25 areas of third sector activity along
with the CEO of WCVA.
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
Members of the Third Sector Partnership Council and the networks
they represent are as follows:

Funding and Compliance sub-committee
The TSPC also has a funding and compliance sub-committee which
monitors the code of practice
for funding the third sector and considers any breaches of the
code or concerns from the sector regarding funding issues.
WCVA's Chief Executive, Ruth Marks, sits on the
committee and any organisations wishing to discuss concerns over
funding arrangements or the code of practice can contact Ruth
in confidence by emailing our helpdesk.
