'Best Value' guidance consultation
Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has launched a new consultation on draft ‘Best Value’ guidance. It sets out clear guidelines for local authorities who are considering cutting funding to local voluntary and community organisations.
The guidance sets out the specific terms of engagement between the sector and local government and builds on the principles of the compact. This is more important than ever and should help both partners work together effectively to help identify ways of lessening the impact of cuts on individuals and communities.
To ensure that the final guidance is as well-informed and robust as possible, please complete the online survey before the closing date of 14 June 2011.
