The Richmond upon Thames Compact sets out the way the Council and the voluntary sector have agreed to work together. It contains guidelines and principles to help us support good practice and effective working relationships.
The Richmond upon Thames Compact(pdf, 292KB) was launched in November 2014, following a period of extensive consultation with stakeholders to agree the outcomes, commitments, and implementation plan. Richmond CVS, in partnership with the Council, will be supporting the implementation through the co-ordination of a Compact Review Board.
In addition to the revised Richmond upon Thames Compact, two Compact Toolkits have been developed. These are designed to support statutory and voluntary sector partners to work better together and demonstrate how they are meeting the Compact commitments.
The Toolkits can be accessed and utilised by anyone looking for guidance on how to ensure their work programmes, projects and partnerships meet the outcomes of the Compact.
Ensuring that there is an established framework for partnership working lies at the core of the Compact and Toolkits. The objective is for all stakeholders to be able to have a voice and use the Compact as a way of working together. The implementation document outlines numerous ways in which the Compact will be implemented.
It aims to:
A Compact Review Board of cross sector representatives has been established, which will have oversight of the Compact and agree the Annual Report for the Compact. It will also form part of the resolution process and help to gather examples of good practice where the Compact has worked well for partners.
The members of the Compact Review Board are:
