Concise guidelines published to mark Compact Week

An abbreviated version of the Compact has been published to mark this year’s Compact Week.

The Commission for the Compact has also released the Concise Compact Guide to tie in with the 10th anniversary of the agreement, which sets out how public sector bodies and third sector organisations should behave towards each other.

"The Compact and its five codes of practice run to more than 150 pages, so we decided to develop the guide in response to calls to make it more accessible," said Ruth Fennemore, policy adviser at the commission.

"It's designed primarily as a reference tool to help busy people quickly check the Compact guidelines they should be following in particular situations, through an easy referencing approach referring to sectors and themes."

The booklet is designed only as a point of reference and people should still read the full guidelines in the complete Compact and codes of practice, she added.

Compact Week, which ends on Saturday, has been run to raise awareness of the agreement through various events.
