About the South Gloucestershire Compact

In November 1998, the Government formally recognised the essential contribution of the Voluntary and Community Sector to the work of public sector organisations in local areas; this resulted in the launch of the National Compact. This document set out a number of commitments relating to how the Government and the voluntary and community sector should work together, with the aim of strengthening relationships and improving partnership working between the two sectors.

South Gloucestershire produced its own local Compact Getting it Right Together” in November 2004 “. The latest update was published in July 2014, when it was adopted by the South Gloucestershire Partnership
