The Bournemouth Compact
The ‘Compact on Relations between Government and the Voluntary Sector’ is the key document setting out how partnerships between local public bodies and the voluntary sector should function. Last year we worked with Bournemouth Borough Council to review and refresh the local Compact. This work will be even more important in the future as we seek to build strong partnerships with the new agencies which have been established. To this end we will be working hard in the year ahead to raise awareness of the Bournemouth Compact.
Dignitaries lined up to sign the refreshed Bournemouth Compact and pledge their on-going commitment to work in partnership with the voluntary and community sector at our recent Annual General Meeting. We now intend to build on this commitment to take the Compact forward in an action plan. A number of voluntary organisations also took the opportunity to sign up to the principles of the Compact. There will be an opportunity for any of you who haven’t yet managed to sign up to do so at our networking events or alternatively you can contact us on 01202 466130 and drop in to the office to add your organisation to the growing list.
