The Compact is the national framework for the relationship between the government and the Voluntary and Community Sector.
In Hampshire, currently, statutory and voluntary organisations have signed up to a jointly agreed framework of principles called the One Compact for Hampshire 77kb.
Supporting these principles there are four codes of good practice:-
The relationship between the sectors has developed over recent years and public services have changed. It is important that any agreement reflects these changes.
The Coalition Government are currently reviewing the National Compact.
Hampshire Voluntary Sector Consortium are considering the views of the voluntary sector and partners about whether to update the One Compact in line with the Coalition Government's review.
Information about these discussions are available from Community Action Hampshire.
