CVO seeks conduit to new govt

The group wants a seat at Howard Quayle's top table

The Island's third sector is offering to help the new government deal with a host of social issues.

Umbrella group the Council for Voluntary Organisations or CVO represents a myriad of charities and community groups, offering a collective 'voice' for the third sector.

Its member organisations have first-hand experience helping vulnerable people in the community - and say they would welcome a fresh partnership with Howard Quayle's government.

Mr Quayle made helping the most needy in society a key manifesto promise in his bid for the leadership.

CVO vice chairman David Gawne says they want a seat at the 'top table' - to advise and assist wherever they can.
