The election is fast approaching. Involve Yorkshire & Humber wants to ensure that all political parties know and understand the valuable work being done by voluntary and community organisations in our region - that your voices are heard and your needs are met.

In consultation with the sector, Involve has produced 'Doing Better Together: a manifesto for the VCS in Yorkshire and Humber'.

You can download the manifesto here: http://bit.ly/17aQMIX

At the end of March, Involve will be contacting all the party parliamentary candidates in our region and asking them to sign up to the manifesto and support the VCS in building and sustaining thriving communities across Yorkshire and Humber.

But before we do that, we need strength in numbers. We are asking all voluntary and community organisations to pledge their support for the manifesto.

The more supporters we have when we approach the election candidates, the more likely we are to secure their support and achieve the requests in the manifesto.

Pledge your support for the VCS manifesto by filling in the form below:

* 1. Organisation

* 2. Contact email address (for communications about the Manifesto only)

* 3. Why you support 'Doing Better Together: A Manifesto for the Voluntary and Community Sector in Yorkshire and the Humber'
