THRE – Third Sector Human Rights and Equalities is a new nationwide project led by GCVS in partnership with HTSI and EVOC.


THRE is working with Scotland’s Third Sector Interface organisations (TSIs) to develop resources, training and networks which support third sector organisations towards taking a human rights and equalities first approach to their organisational development and delivery.

The project will also be helping to equip organisations and individuals with the skills to champion human rights and equalities, allowing the sector as a whole to challenge inequality and make a positive difference.

THRE aims to act as a bridge connecting Scotland’s innovative and thriving third sector to the country’s existing internationally recognised human rights and equalities sector. The goal is to help deliver the Scottish Government’s vision for a Scotland that is inclusive, free from discrimination, and where the human rights of everyone are respected, protected, and fulfilled.

The project has staff based in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands, working with their local TSIs to give the project national reach combined with a local understanding of the needs of the third sector.

THRE is funded by The Scottish Government Equality and Human Rights Fund which is managed by Inspiring Scotland.
