Westminster’s local compact is a framework to strengthen working relations between the public, voluntary and community sectors. Originally published in 2004, the compact was updated in 2012.
The Compact Steering Group is made up of representatives from the voluntary and statutory sectors. It meets four times a year, to lead action to put the compact into practice. The voluntary and community sector is represented on the Compact Steering Group by Voluntary Action Westminster, the Westminster Community Network and Volunteer Centre Westminster. The Compact Steering Group also provides an informal forum for resolving disputes around the practical implementation of the Compact.
For more information on the Compact Steering Group, please contact Yvonne Watkins-Knight at Voluntary Action Westminster on 020 7535 0486 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
