Volunteering And The Voluntary Sector

Purpose of the group

To provide a Parliamentary forum bringing together voluntary sector groups and organisations encouraging volunteering with MSPs to developing an understanding of the social and economic role of the sector; to engage with the Scottish Government and local government on issues of importance to the sector, including the role of the national and local compacts and a volunteering strategy; and to provide understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the sector and to inform policy on how best the potential of the sector can be fully realised in the interests of local communities
