What we do

One Voice

By joining Third Sector, Dumfries and Galloway, voluntary organisations, charities, social enterprises, co-operatives, credit unions and mutuals work together across Dumfries and Galloway to put our sector first.


We seek to explain what the third sector is; how it impacts upon the lives of individuals and communities in Dumfries and Galloway; how it impacts on the strength and sustainability of our local economy; and how it can do more when its role is recognised and supported. We do this by commissioning and publishing research, developing and publishing case studies and helping our members tell their story in the local media.

We represent the interests of the sector by lobbying opinion formers and decision makers in the Scottish Government, Dumfries and Galloway Council and NHS Dumfries and Galloway.

Co-ordination and Networking

Everyone working in the sector, whether as an employee or a volunteer, can contribute to the work we do to promote the sector. We provide opportunities for networking so that ideas can be shared and developed. Third Sector Community provides an opportunity to network with others in the sector, no matter where you are in Dumfries and Galloway.
