Independence in mind

The Panel on the Independence of the Voluntary Sector launched their fourth and final report yesterday. The launch event revealed a lot of really interesting - and really opposing - opinions on the value of an independent sector, and the degree to which this is being threatened by things like the Lobbying Act and ‘gagging clauses’ in contracts.

Some of the coverage of the event in sector press focused on the Panel’s recommendations for a Compact with ‘teeth’.

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about working on the Compact, it’s that one of its key strengths is that it is a mutually beneficial, voluntary agreement.

Despite predictions, the world and the Compact will continue to thrive

Nostradamus may have predicted that the world would end in 2012, but here at Compact Voice we’re hunkering down for a busy year, with a lot of Compact developments on the horizon. No doom and gloom here, then.

Read a round up of last year's major developments for Compact Voice, and find out what's on the horizon for 2012.
