Wales partnership agreement backs five-year funding

The Welsh Assembly Government has restated its commitment to five-year funding by signing a partnership agreement with the voluntary sector.

At an event in Cardiff, social justice minister Brian Gibbons signed the agreement, which iterates promises in a previous version of the agreement, along with representatives from umbrella bodies the Wales Council for Voluntary Action and County Voluntary Councils.

Besides committing the government to five-year funding, the document pledges that the umbrella bodies will provide infrastructure support to charities and voluntary organisations across Wales.

"We expect public bodies to recognise the third sector's role in creating public services that really reflect people's needs and preferences," said Gibbons.

A spokeswoman for the WCVA said she welcomed the assembly's ongoing commitment to the agreement. "It is trying to make sure that all organisations across Wales, however big or small, have access to a level of support," she said.
