‘We will help vol­un­teers’

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FAMILY MEMORIES -

CON­SER­VA­TIVES have pledged to help sup­port the vol­un­tary sec­tor. The Tories have promised to do more for vol­un­teers if they are elected. Leader Annabel Goldie said: “Vol­un­tary sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions are vi­tal cogs in our com­mu­ni­ties, of­fer­ing a wealth of ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence on some of the most press­ing so­cial is­sues. “I want to see them more in­volved in the fab­ric of so­cial life. “I know that the third sec­tor is more than ca­pa­ble of step­ping in to sup­ply pub­lic ser­vices but big gov­ern­ment, vested in­ter­ests and fief­doms have of­ten got in the way. This has to change and I am de­ter­mined to de­liver that change.”
