HTSI Membership is free

We have moved to a new member platform in April 2022!

 With this new platform we are hoping to enhance our members' experiences, strengthen networks, and improve communication.

Please email enquiry@highlandtsi.org.uk to join our new platform, if you meet the criteria.

Membership to HTSI

We value our members as a vital part of the governance and accountability of our organisation. As a member you will receive discounts to HTSI events, regular newsletters and opportunities to engage with the development of the Third Sector in Highlands.  Best of all, our membership is free for eligible groups and individuals - so that no matter what your financial resource, you can enjoy HTSI Membership!


The TSI in Highland ensures local service delivery through our Partner Organisations with whom third sector groups can enjoy membership and enhanced member services separately from membership to HTSI. 


Third Sector defined

  • has a positive community purpose

  • is not principally set up to distribute profit to shareholders

  • is not run by or affiliated to a political party or a government body
