Reshaping Care for Older People Glasgow’s Change Fund Understanding the Structures and Keeping Up-to-date There are number of ways the Third Sector plays a role in the governance of Glasgow Change Plan: Third Sector Reference group (TSRG) In June 2011 the Third Sector Interface’s Executive Committee established a sub group, the Third Sector Reference Group, to support the work of the Change Plan and RCOP in Glasgow. This group is led and supported by GCVS, as signatories to the Glasgow Change Plan and comprises key intermediaries and specialist organisations that are involved in planning, developing and delivering services for older people and their carers. It is the role of the TSRG to provide strategic leadership and TS representation and input to the Strategy Group for the Change Plan.

Capacity Building Workstream The CB work stream is chaired by the Third Sector and supported by the Third Sector Coordinator to ensure connectivity with the TSRG and wider Change Fund Structures. The group is comprised of third sector and public sector partners with specialist knowledge in key areas relating to care and the development of community based services. The work stream will oversee the management and monitoring of the Transformation Fund with administration and management support from the Voluntary Action Fund. The Fund will support activities running between October 2012 and September 2013. Application forms and guidance will be available when the Programme launches in early September. VAF is also planning two information sessions at the end of August for potential applicants. The final decision on applications will be made in mid-October 2012 with approved projects commencing thereafter. Third Sector representatives are also involved in all work stream groups.
