With Alan McNiven, Chief Executive of Engage Renfrewshire
‘Engage Renfrewshire’ is the single door access for community action, volunteering and the local social enterprise sector in Renfrewshire. As Renfrewshire’s Third Sector Interface (TSI) the Company operates as a strategic Community Planning Partner and first point of contact for community and voluntary sector issues. An important service provider for the local community and voluntary sector – providing both administration and significant financial services for many of its members – Engage Renfrewshire also provides services for its local public sector partners.
As well as improving the ability of the local voluntary organisations to deliver better, more efficient services, a key task for the Company is the promotion of the local Third Sector as being ‘open for business’ – known for its professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness and innovation.
