Cabinet releases best practice guide for limiting council cuts to civil society
Nick Hurd has announced the release of a best practice guide designed to help councils limit the effect of spending cuts on civil society, at the Navca conference in Bournemouth.
Better together [235 kB, PDF], written collaboratively by the Cabinet Office and NAVCA follows Prime Minister David Cameron's warning to local councils not to see cutting funding to civil society organisations as the "easy" option. The guide reiterates this point and outlines the need for communication, leadership, collaboration and transparency between civil society organisations and their local councils.
