Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway’s vision is to improve the quality of life of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities in Dumfries and Galloway, by working in partnership with third sector organisations and public sector agencies.
The role of the Programme Administrator – External Funds is to support the Programme Manager- External Funds to investigate and secure funding sources for the third sector which can be administered by TSDG and to manage the administration. Together these two posts form the Fund Programme Management team within TSDG.
The Fund Programme Management team will work with local, Scottish and UK government, large funding programmes such as the National Lottery and Borderlands, economic development agencies such as South of Scotland Enterprise, third sector organisations (TSOs) in Dumfries and Galloway and beyond, health and social care partnerships and other third sector interfaces (TSIs).
The first confirmed programme to be administered by TSDG is the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund (CMH&WBF) for the South of Scotland, valued at £1.52m over two years. This fund will be administered by the Fund Programme Management team
