Strengthening Communities & Involving People
To ensure that the city has an increasingly efficient and more effective Third Sector; one that is ready and able to bid for and deliver public services, that enables citizens and communities to have a strong voice in decision making about public services and supports community resilience and well-being through independent citizen and community activity. 
 The Third Sector comprises not-for-profit and non-governmental organisation. It is a term which encompasses the voluntary and community sector (VCS) and not-for-private-profit organisations, e.g. social enterprises (SE) and charities.
