Consultation launched to decide future of Compact – Thursday 7 August 2008

The Commission for the Compact has officially launched a consultation about the future of the Compact.

The three-month consultation includes 22 questions on how the Compact - the voluntary agreement that sets out how charities and public bodies should treat each other - should be changed to serve its purpose best. 

Questions include:

  • should the agreement have statutory force?
  • should the commission be made a statutory body?
  • should the commissioner be given powers to investigate alleged Compact breaches?

The commission's consultation will run until 10 November and responses and views should be sent to (opens new window).

The commission's discussion paper is available to view on the Compact website (opens new window).
