Help with cuts - voluntary sector
The UK is currently undergoing a period of substantial cuts to local funding. While no-one debates the need to reduce the deficit, we’re concerned that these cuts might be happening in a non-Compact compliant way which threatens the sustainability of local services and voluntary sector providers.
