Transparent Data

Don Foster M.P.Compact Voice has welcomed a letter from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to every local authority in England, reminding them of the important role of the voluntary and community sector.

Don Foster MP reminded councils of the important role of local Compacts and of following government’s Best Value Guidance.

The letter draws on findings from Compact Voice’s Freedom of Information Act data, which identified that half of all councils are cutting funding to the voluntary and community sector disproportionately – i.e., by more than the reduction in their own budget.
