3SG is a thriving, independent membership network for the charity, social enterprise and voluntary sector operating in Bath and North East Somerset. Our aim is to raise the profile of our members and give them a chance to influence local strategic decision making. We run and share relevant events, training and disseminate information and post job opportunities. In December 2018 we became a registered charity and a founding member of the West Of England Civil Society Partnership.
3SG have 10 Trusteeswho represent the views of the local 3rd sector and sit on strategic local boards and networks. We also have a part time Development Manager who manages the 3SG network, organises events and manages relationships with local partners. You can contact 3SG here.
In 2019 we will be launching an exciting new project called Compassionate Communities B&NES which you can read more about here.
