Compact credited in saving Wolverhampton Council's voluntary sector budget
Wolverhampton City Council has decided not to reduce its £2.97m funding for the sector.
Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council (WVSC) has credited the Compact with helping to maintain the city's voluntary sector budget. Wolverhampton City Council decided it would keep its allocation of £2.97m funding for the voluntary and community sector for 2011/12, despite significant budgetary pressures.
Ian Darch, chief executive of WVSC and RAWM board member, said the Compact – the partnership agreement between the council, public agencies and the voluntary and community sector – had helped to keep the budget at existing levels.
