Office of the Third Sector (OTS) operates a strategic funding programme, which provides long-term core funding and financial stability to third sector organisations that operate at a national and regional level. The programme represents long-term partnership working, strategic partners have been integral in developing policy in a number of areas, including supporting the sector through the downturn.

In 2008-09 we provided strategic grants worth £12,206,315 to support 42 third sector organisation strategic partners who can speak with authority and credibility over a very wide range of sector interests. These figures do not include funding for V, who also receives strategic funding but on a separate basis. In 2008-09 they received £5 million, which included marketing costs.
