Compact nationally

Has been around for 14 years

Basis for DCLG Best Value Statutory Guidance in 2011

One of 6 cross cutting themes in government departmental business plans this year


Compact locally

182 local Compacts across England

82% agree that effort needs to be made to implement the Compact in full

Public sector is more positive than VCS


  • Commissioning and decommissioning

  • Ensuring meaningful engagement

  • Localism

How is the Compact relevant now?


What should the VCS expect?

“Localism is a rose with many thorns. Many local organisations are finding councils are reducing their grants and other funding. The reason is because their grants from central government have been slashed, as local government is forced to shoulder a disproportionate share of austerity measures.“

Sir Bert Massie


What should the VCS expect?

“Expectations need to be two way. Localism requires a different approach to partnership. Each of us has something important to contribute.”

Hilary Benn MP
