Redcar & Cleveland Compact

Guidelines for a new method of working, which can cover local public bodies and the voluntary and community sector in Redcar and Cleveland, will be outlined by a national expert at an awareness-raising day on Wednesday, November 1.

Mark Blake, the project manager for the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, will address the meeting at Belmont House, Guisborough, organised by Redcar and Cleveland Council, which is applying compact principles across the Authority.

The Redcar and Cleveland Compact is an overarching agreement between 28 local public bodies and approximately 450 voluntary and community sector organisations which sets out working arrangements and what they can expect from each other.

The Council's Compact Champion, Councillor Chris Abbott, said: "We are fully committed to embedding the Compact principles into Council policy and procedures."
