Third Sector Networking Events

30 August, 2022

Local Community Groups in East Kilbride urged to attend Third Sector Networking Events.

VASLan (Voluntary Action South Lanarkshire), in partnership with Connected East Kilbride are urging local East Kilbride and Strathaven community groups to have their voices heard at a networking event.

Gordon McHugh CEO of Kilbryde Hospice said” Connected East Kilbride are pleased, on behalf of VASLan, to have been nominated to deliver 4 Third Sector Locality Network events across East Kilbride and Strathaven.

The partners of Connected East Kilbride being Kilbryde Hospice, Healthy and Active in East Kilbride and The Citizens Advice Bureau East Kilbride, are working together to consolidate our relationship with the East Kilbride Locality Third Sector providers for the benefit of East Kilbride and Strathaven’s citizens and communities.”

The proposed Locality Network Events are to help voluntary services to come together to share key information, discuss the challenges affecting the third sector in the locality, share good practice, offer support were needed, understand each other so that providers will be better able to respond to the challenges ahead given the continued increasing pressures placed on funding and increased need.

Gordon said “we all have shared principles and values on how we support our communities and have developed meaningful activities for all ages. It is more important than ever, that we work well together to do the best we can collaborating with our communities, stakeholders, and partners.”

The stakeholder event is being held on Tuesday 27 September from 09.30 within the Village Centre in East Kilbride. To book your space please call Julie Myles on 01355 202020 or There is also a survey of local providers being used to set the agenda for the meeting which is also available on request through the same contact at the hospice.
