The Third Sector Partnership Council (TSPC) is a key mechanism for the third sector to talk to, and hear from, Welsh Government.


The TPSC is chaired by the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children. It is made up of representatives of third sector networks working across 25 areas of third sector activity along with the CEO of WCVA.


The main purpose of the Third Sector Partnership Council is to make sure that the principles set out in the Third Sector Scheme are put into practice:

Third Sector Scheme

It also provides an opportunity for the sector to raise issues of interest or concern. It generally does not discuss issues that relate to only one area of interest which can be taken up through biannual ministerial meetings and as a national body it is concerned with issues affecting all of Wales.

What the network does

The TSPC employment network has 2 key functions:

1. To promote and support the role the 3rd sector plays in addressing employment issues in Wales; and
2. To represent the views and concerns of 3rd sector employers


The network consists of over 100 organisations. Guided by our manifesto the network engages with the Welsh Government through consultation responses and TSPC meetings.


How to join the network

This is a virtual network open to any organisation with an interest in employment.  To ensure that the third sector has a voice the network needs representatives from all quarters.  If employment sits anywhere in your workplace you can support and benefit from joining.



Current priorities

The priorities for the network for the coming period are set out in our manifesto and cover 5 key areas:


1. Tackling in-work poverty
2. Addressing barriers to the workplace
3. Employment support
4. Improving community engagement and partnership working
5. Developing closer links between Employment and Education/learning through identification of employer recruitment needs
