A warm welcome to the first edition of 3SC Impact, the monthly roundup of news and views from 3SC.

3SC is not changing, but evolving. Our core business model – winning government contracts for third sector enterprises – remains the same, but we are expanding into new areas, with a new ethos, underscoring our new strapline – Partnerships with Purpose. We have formed collaborations with the TI Group, a social impact measurement, management and design organisation; Safe and Found, which operates a system for tracking and monitoring people with early stage dementia; RentSquare, which runs a transparent and affordable letting service to empower tenants with greater choice; and Rosi Media, a collective of film-makers and social media consultants.

As we extend our reach into new areas we aim to continue what we have always done well – just more it of it. In forming a wider network of like-minded organisations we believe we are taking an active step in delivering into the new zeitgeist – a world where society lifts its spirits, and helps itself to a better future. Please do tune into future issues of 3SC Impact – let us know what you think, and, just as important, feed us material for future inclusion.

John Swinney, Chair of 3SC.
