Hello my name is Susan Elan Jones I’m a
member of parliament for Clywd South in North Wales and I’m co-chair of the All
Party Parliamentary Group for Charities and Volunteering before I was a Member
of Parliament I worked in the charity sector for 15 years. Now, I’m presenting a
Bill in Parliament very soon. The Charity Trustees Time Off For Duties Bill and I’m doing this because I think that charity trustees should have the same status in law as school governors, magistrates and other categories. I want to thank the Small Charities Coalition for their support, and I
want to thank all the members of the Small Charities Coalition who’ve been in
touch aswell. I think we need this to make sure that charity trustees are
supported better in law and have the same time off for public duties. Thank
you for your support we must take this forward.
