It was a great pleasure for Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones to attend BAVO’s AGM and to have the opportunity to say thank you to BAVO and the team for all that they do to help so many individuals and community groups.

For many local voluntary organisations, BAVO is the first port of call, signposting organisations in the right direction in order for them to develop their own skills, services and activities. So much of the work that the Third Sector organisations do cannot be replicated by government as they are rooted in their communities.

Mr Jones said “We want to see a confident and strong Third Sector, BAVO, through its work ensures that Third Sector voices are heard by me, by Welsh Government and partners to ensure we have vibrant and better communities.”
