Derby Compact bags top honour at commission awards

The Derby Compact has been named the Local Compact of the Year at a ceremony in London.

The gong was one of five handed out by Sir Bert Massie, Commissioner for the Compact, at an event in London yesterday.

The presentation ties in with Compact Week, the annual event designed to raise the profile of the agreement that sets out how public bodies and third sector organisations should treat each other.

The Derby Compact was picked out for its work on improving Compact compliance among organisations in the city and developing a conflict resolution process.

The Department of Health was given an award for its review of its funding of the sector. Laura Hack, partnership manager at the Suffolk Association of Voluntary Organisations, was named Compact Champion of the Year.

Haringey Compact was given the Commissioner's Award for its work on a toolkit that can be used to ensure the Compact is adhered to.

The awards are run by the Commission for the Compact in partnership with Compact Voice and the Office of the Third Sector.

"All of our finalists demonstrate how the Compact can be a living document that influences action and encourages both sectors to work together to improve and enhance the services and support they offer to the public," said Massie.
