Cross Party Group on Volunteering

Volunteer Scotland is secretariat of the Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party Group on Volunteering. The CPG membership includes MSPs from all parties along with representatives from the wider volunteering sector.

A cross-party group (CPG) provides opportunities for relevant organisations or individuals to influence MSPs on a key theme. The aims of this CPG include:

  • to raise awareness of volunteering across sectors and to increase participation rates in all its forms
  • to ensure volunteering has a high profile in the Scottish Parliament and influences Scottish Government Policy
  • to ensure opportunities for volunteering are recognised across all Scottish Government directorates
  • to examine, and share research from Scotland, the UK and beyond
  • to liaise and work with other CPGs to promote volunteering
