The awards, which are run by the commission in partnership with the Office of the Third Sector and Compact Voice, will be made in the following areas: Local Compact of the Year; Compact Award for Excellence at a Regional Level; Compact Award for Excellence at a National Level; Compact Champion of the Year; and the Commissioner’s Award.
Compact commissioner Sir Bert Massie said: “This year, we’re changing the format and launching five new categories for the Compact Awards. But our objective remains the same – to demonstrate the Compact in action and celebrate and recognise some of the excellent partnership working taking place between the government and the voluntary and community sector on a local, regional and national level.”
Entries will be accepted for the awards from 19 May to 29 August. The winners will be announced during Compact Week, which begins on 1 November.
