Bright Future for the Voluntary and Community Sector

Plans to enhance the role of voluntary and community organisations as the cornerstone of a healthy society and a partner in delivering world class public services were set out by Home Secretary Charles Clarke. These proposals comprise - Capacity Builders, a new sector-led development agency to manage the Government’s investment programme for the sector’s infrastructure and give structure to the problematic hubs strategy. Compact Plus – a new opt-in scheme which will shorten and simplify the commitments, especially on funding, between Government and third sectori organisations working together. A new Compact Funding Code, reflecting the work on procurement and full cost recovery. A further £90 million investment over the next two years for the Futurebuilders fund to build the sector’s service delivery capacity.
