The Worcestershire Compact Summary explains:

“Worcestershire’s Compact recognises the important role that the VCS plays in the way that services are delivered to local communities. In particular, they often provide services at a very local level, and are able to reach people and communities that other organisations don’t reach. The voluntary sector also has the ability to mobilise significant numbers of volunteers and plays an important role in speaking up for people who aren’t able to speak up for themselves.

“Worcestershire’s Compact will provide a very clear framework for the way that statutory and VCS organisations get together to provide services and should mean that Worcestershire residents receive better services that are provided in a way that is right for them. It will also ensure respect and equality between the different organisations.”
