New draft Compact to be published today
A draft new version of the Compact has been published today.
The document, which governs relationships between the public and voluntary sectors, is being renewed urgently because of October’s comprehensive spending review.
It is hoped the new version will contain measures that prevent government departments treating charities unfairly when spending cuts take effect.
The draft version will be the subject of a six-week consultation and is then expected to be ratified in November - less than a year after the publication of a refreshed version.
