Promoting & Supporting The Third Sector

Across South Scotland, charities, volunteer groups and community clubs are changing lives and expanding horizons. These third sector groups play a hugely important role in our society, delivering support and advice to those in need, encouraging people to live healthy active lives and making our communities better places to live.

I’m determined to highlight the great work these organisations are doing during my time as an MSP. I regularly visit third sector groups throughout the region and promote their work in parliament and local media.

I’m always happy to receive suggestions of groups within South Scotland (particularly the Clydesdale, Kilmarnock & Irvine Valley and Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley constituencies) that deserve recognition or who would like me to visit.
