The University of Glasgow’s Third Sector Knowledge Exchange Collaborative – The Collaborative – focused on improving the sustainability of Glasgow’s third sector, pivotal to community resilience, as organisations adapt, recover and transform from COVID-19.
Working with the Glasgow Council for Voluntary Sector, The Collaborative aimed to become a sustainable cross-discipline hub for pro-bono advice and expertise for Glasgow’s third sector organisations (TSOs), helping them access academic expertise on a variety of pressing issues in all phases of their lifecycle.
The pilot phase of The Collaborative has now concluded. The materials created during its development are available here alongside articles marking key stages of the project and reflections on its achievements.
