Funding news

Commission for the Compact urges LAs to give at least three months' notice of any funding changes - 7 December 2009

The Commission for the Compact has published new guidance for councils on managing budget revisions.

The guidance says "clear and robust reasons should be provided" when ending a funding relationship and organisations that are affected should be given an opportunity to respond and advises giving at least three months' notice of changes to funding, as councils prepare for expected cuts in the spring.

The guidance is available to download from the Compact website.
