We are delighted to announce that TIS has been awarded registered charity status. The TIS team submitted a detailed and thorough application to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) which was successfully granted, and our charity number is SC050555.
TIS will continue to champion housing, community development, and engagement practices, and work for an active, inclusive, and just Scotland, with strong, equitable, and sustainable communities.
Ilene Campbell, TIS Chief Executive, commented:
This is fantastic news for TIS and marks an important chapter. We’re thrilled to have reached this new stage after thirty-two years of supporting communities and housing organisations across the Scottish social housing sector to work together to develop effective solutions.
Whilst we have always been a not-for-profit organisation, the achievement of charitable status in Scotland is a boost to our activities and reinforces our mission to provide the best possible advice, support, and training services.
The new status will enable TIS to move forward with our strategic vision, and be even more ambitious in providing a range of cutting edge solutions to meet the needs of tenants, communities, and housing organisations.
We are excited to explore the opportunities that this presents in 2021 and beyond.
