Compact Voice is to recruit two new members of staff after the Cabinet Office increased its funding for the next four years.

The organisation, which is based at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations and represents the voluntary sector on the Compact, will receive £350,000 in 2011/12, rising to £358,000 in 2012/13, £368,000 in 2013/14 and £378,000 in 2014/15.

It received £307,627 for the current financial year and a total of £915,979 for the last three years.

Tom Elkins, manager of Compact Voice, said the increase should be viewed in the context of a "significant reduction in overall spend on the Compact following the announcement that the Commission for the Compact is closing.

"Our funding will continue to be used to promote and provide expertise, training and support on the Compact," he said.

"We also intend to use some of the additional funding to employ two new part-time members of staff, who are going to be based outside London and provide Compact expertise on the ground at local and regional level."
