Promoting and developing a vibrant third sector

Fostering resilient and empowered communities in the Scottish Borders by providing support to, and representation for, community groups, voluntary organisations, social enterprises and individual volunteers.



Borders Community Action is one of a network of 32 Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) operating in Scotland, with one for each local authority area. Formed by the Scottish Government, TSIs aid the development of voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises and volunteering.

TSI Network Scotland and SCVO jointly produced the TSI Scotland Network guide which details the size and scale of the third sector. The guide was presented to MSPs at the parliament to help develop their understanding of our work and how it can be used to support their constituents nationally and locally. You can read the guide here.
