The SE is actively pursuing a range of measures designed to further its commitment to support the voluntary and community sector.

These include: implementing the Compact across central government departments and agencies; attracting new forms of financial support; strengthening the council for voluntary service network; completing the local volunteer development agency network; increasing the number of people taking part in voluntary activities, supporting volunteering among young people; and reorganising administrative arrangements within the Executive to give voluntary sector issues a more strategic and high profile focus. On 31 January we launched a major consultation on the Active Communities Initiative and are holding a high level conference about it on 2 March.
