Annual survey of local Compacts: One week left!

The Compact Voice annual survey of local Compacts is now open.

Compact Voice are encouraging voluntary and community organisations to take 10 minutes to fill in the survey – and are offering everyone who completes the survey the chance to win an Amazon Kindle.
It is really important that Compact Voice are able to gain an understanding of the issues, challenges and successes experienced by local Compacts across the country, and the survey provides a vital way of doing this.
Last year, your responses helped us to develop clear campaigning messages which in turn helped strengthen the Compact both locally and nationally.
For example, we were able to say that 88% of respondents felt that the Compact was "important and needs to be implemented in full". However, we also confirmed that more national leadership on the Compact was needed to set the tone for local work.
We believe that this point is being taken more seriously by government, and our progress last year shows this. The Compact has been named as one of No. 10’s six cross-departmental business plan priorities. This means that departments must demonstrate how their activities deliver against these six key priorities.

The Department for Communities and Local Government also published their Best Value Statutory Guidance this year, which makes explicit mention of honouring the commitments in local Compacts, particularly when changing funding arrangements.
We know that more needs to be done, and your views will help us to move things forward. We will be publishing the results of the survey in a report in Summer 2012, and basing our activities on what you tell us is important.
