THRE – Third Sector Human Rights and Equalities

THRE – Third Sector Human Rights and Equalities, is a new nationwide project led by GCVS in partnership with HTSI and EVOC.

We are working with Scotland’s Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) to develop resources, training and networks to support third sector organisations towards taking a human rights and equalities first approach to their organisational development and delivery.

We will also be working to give organisations and individuals the skills to become human rights and equalities champions, allowing the sector as a whole to better challenge inequalities and make a positive difference.

THRE aims to act as a bridge connecting Scotland’s innovative and thriving third sector to the country’s existing internationally recognised human rights and equalities sector and help to deliver the Scottish Government’s vision for a Scotland that is inclusive, free from discrimination, and where the human rights of everyone are respected, protected, and fulfilled.

We have staff based in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands who will work with their local TSIs to give the project national reach combined with a local understanding of the needs of the third sector across Scotland.

THRE is funded by The Scottish Government Equality and Human Rights Fund which is managed by Inspiring Scotland.

Sign the Equality Action Pledge

Research shows that BME and women trustees are significantly underrepresented in charity boardrooms. In response to this research and #CharitySoWhite, GCVS and CRER have launched an Equality Action Pledge to help third sector organisations take tangible steps towards tackling discrimination and under representation as part of Trustees’ Week 2019.

We ask organisations to formally acknowledge that the lack of diversity in the voluntary sector is a serious issue that requires action. We ask that they commit to tackling discrimination and underrepresentation within their organisation.
