A new Compact for South Gloucestershire

What we want to know

South Gloucestershire is proud of its enduring Compact between public sector agencies and the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations working in the area. The Compact represents a shared recognition that collaborating in partnership can more strongly serve, represent, develop and promote the wellbeing of local people and communities in South Gloucestershire.

The current Council Plan sets a goal to refresh the current Compact in 2022, and through this consultation we are seeking feedback on a proposal for a new Compact.

The aim of the new Compact is to move from the current rules-based codes to a set of agreed principles governing behaviour from all parties based on three key areas:

  1. mutual respect
  2. partnership working, and
  3. effective delivery.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
