Third Sector Centre

5-7 The Cross, Forfar DD8 1BX

It was proposed by the Third Sector and other partners that a hub type facility would be a much welcomed asset to the community of Angus. This then began the journey of VAA purchasing The Cross in Forfar. The thinking behind The Cross was to provide a facility where Third Sector and statutory services can come together and be based within the same building. The main benefits of agencies and services being under the one roof was to improve the experience of community members e.g. if someone was possibly struggling with their mental health and wellbeing and had an appointment with one of the organisations within the building, it is then much easier to refer the individual on to VAA for example if there were also interested in volunteering. This reduced waiting times and provided the best possible service to the community. The Cross was officially opened on 8th November 2019, and was at full capacity almost immediately VAA now co-locate with 13 other organisations who have a permanent base within the premises and many others who prefer to hot desk. The organisations and services based within the building range from the Glen Clova project to Hear Me Counselling, there’s a very large mix of organisations which is a great opportunity for all involved. VAA continues to explore ways in which The Cross, can deliver innovative and much needed collaborative service delivery, available to people at weekends and evenings. This work spans both HSCI, CPP and CJP involving dialogues with Third Sector, Angus Council, HSCI, Police and Fire and Rescue Service.
