03 | Third Sector Voice

Since 2017, STRiVE has facilitated an elected representation system, where local delegates are elected into positions to represent the East Lothian Third Sector at Community Planning and Health and Social Care meetings. The delegate system was designed with the Sector following a series of workshops with What Works Scotland.

Key to the delegate role is the representation of the voice of the local Third Sector at statutory meetings, please see the list of local delegates below and click on links to find out more about them and the meetings they attend;
