Our Purpose

Sometimes called the 'Third Sector’, the city’s many clubs, charities, social enterprises and community groups share many challenges as they help the city respond to the twin pressures of austerity and recession. 

Founded in 2012 the Third Sector Café is not a physical café, but a monthly Café Discussion (like a Café Scientifique). Anyone is welcome to come along to share our discussion of the issue of the month.

Third Sector Café is always an enjoyable as well as inspiring morning.
— Cat, Third Sector Café Attendee
