Third sector workers

Community has a rapidly growing membership within the third sector, representing thousands of people working for charities, not for profit organisations, fundraisers, community organisations, social enterprises and other third sector organisations.

Our aim with the third sector is to foster good relationships between organisations and their employees, and to work in partnership with good employers. This enables us to improve working practices across the sector through collective agreements which allows us to constructively engage with the organisation when it comes to pay and terms and conditions.

It is this approach that has drawn many third sector workers to us. You can find out more about our partnership approach here.

We know that in the third sector, workers are sometimes required to go beyond the call of duty to serve their cause. Our specialist third sector officers, trained representatives and regional teams are all dedicated to fighting for you and your sector. Third sector workers are often driven by a desire for social justice and to help people and we want to ensure that your dedication is appreciated.

We also have a third sector steering committee who are working together to tackle the issues faced by the workforce. You can learn more about them here.

These are some of the charities we represent workers in:
