Fairness and Equality
Most people want to live in a community where they are treated fairly and where everyone works together to solve problems, has fun, feels safe, cares for one another and gets along.
However, when some of the mechanisms that help make society fairer for all are either missing or not functioning in the way they should, people can be left behind. Treating people equally builds respect and trust.
As a county we are fortunate to have many voluntary organisations whose specific aims are to provide services for people who, for whatever reason, need extra help and support.
