Date & Time: Thursday 1st August 2019, 10am -12:30pm

Earlier this year, the National Third Sector GIRFEC Project conducted a survey with third sector organisations and interviews with TSI officers to better third sector's engagement in Children’s Services Planning. One of the gaps highlighted was the lack of support at leadership level. In response to this, we are looking at developing a series of opportunities for third sector leaders to network, to share learning and to support their peer.

The Strategic Participation Workshop is a short introductory session on engaging with partners and other stakeholders around your agenda.  We will explore networking and influencing skills.  Participants will have an opportunity to practice their skills and gain confidence in these techniques.   We would welcome delegates input into what they would find most useful, so please do let us know if there are particular areas that you would like the session to cover by 19 July 2019. You can email to

Who could benefit from this?

  • Third sector leaders who are involved in children's services strategic planning
  • Third sector officers/managers who would like to take up a representative role on behalf of their local network/forum
  • Third sector staff who are interested to learn and share own strategic participation skills and experience with their peer
