Who we are
Engage Renfrewshire is a third sector interface (TSI); this means that we support local charities and other not-for-profit groups, so that they can do even more of what they’re good at. We empower organisations to be safe, resourceful and effective, and to grow and develop their services - meaning our communities are inclusive and aspirational.
What we do
We represent the third sector at a community planning level, provide an organisational hub, and offer financial services for individuals and organisations through our social enterprise Engage Finance. Furthermore, the Community And Voluntary Action Team work directly with local organisations and charities to increase their knowledge, resources and funding and to promote the services of our member organisations.
How we do it
Engage Renfrewshire provides advice and support to social enterprises who want to start up or develop further.
We help charities and community groups to build capacity and to be safe, by providing information, advice and training for everything from constitutions to funding.
Engage Renfrewshire has a comprehensive volunteering service, helping organisations who need voluntary support and individuals who are looking for opportunities.
Engage Finance offers payroll and financial services to individuals receiving SDS and charitable organisations across Renfrewshire, in East Renfrewshire, Clackmannanshire and Glasgow.
Engage Renfrewshire hosts other third sector organisations and charities in their community hub.
We are part of local community planning; working with the public and private sectors to enable people and services in working together, in the most effective way possible.
Engage supports groups and organisations throughout Renfrewshire, from their hub close to the Tannahill Centre in Ferguslie Park.
