New home for Third Sector

THIRD Sector Dumfries and Galloway (TSDG) has moved its Dumfries office to The Crichton.

The new base at Monreith House is fully accessible and places the charity amongst a large number of other third sector organisations on the estate.

TSDG is touring the region this summer with support roadshows twice a month and has been undertaking a popular free training programme online.

It is also continuing its regular forums offering a networking opportunity in areas including health and social care, children and young people, social enterprise, employability, and a group for chief officers.

The staff were visited this week by John Dougan, TSDG Board’s chair, who added his delight at the move.

“We have been able to secure a fully accessible, modern office space for our staff here at the Crichton,” he said.

“The Crichton is home to a significant number of third sector organisations, social enterprises, community groups, and businesses, so it feels the natural place for us to be based, going forward.”

The new office is also easily accessible on public transport from the town centre on the number 5 service, with a bus stop next to the office.
