Third Sector Support across Highland
In Highland the responsibility to deliver the role of a Third Sector Interface is shared through a network of delivery organisations.
HTSI maintains overall responsibility for delivery of the agreement with the Scottish Government, but we recognise the need for local service delivery and relationships.
Our delivery partners are a key support and local contact for the sector throughout Highland.
We currently have five delivery agents across the region.

HTSI's Inner Moray Firth Services
The Highland Third Sector Interface delivers TSI functions across the Local Authority area of Highland through a combination of direct delivery and commissioned services. In 2020 we finished an internal process of reducing the number of organisations delivering TSI functions across the Inner Moray Firth area.
The process has resulted in a collaborative approach to redesign services across this area. This resulted in a successful merger with In This Together. This change is one which has also seen us take on the work of Ross-shire Voluntary Action. So, HTSI is now directly delivering across the area known as the Inner Moray Firth.
As of the 1st September 2020, we are now directly delivering these functions across:
Inverness and Inverness-Shire • Nairn and Nairnshire • Mid Ross • East Ross

Iain is responsible for the operational delivery of the TSI elements of activity within HTSI, as funded by the Scottish Government and agreed by the HTSI Board. Specifically, he leads on activity focused around the TSI outcome framework to enable HTSI to be a central source of knowledge of the third sector locally, providing leadership, vision and coordination to better respond to local priorities, including through partnership and collaboration.
He has responsibility for line management of the TSI delivery team which covers volunteering, capacity building of the sector and ensuring a strong third sector voice at a strategic and policy level, locally and nationally.
