Results of Compact Voice survey

10 July 2012

 Key headlines from the survey include:

  • Support for the principles of the Compact continues to remain very high with 82% of respondents agreeing that 'the Compact is important and that effort needs to be made to implement it in full.'

  • 47% of statutory sector respondents felt that they were actively engaged with their local Compact. However, only 18% of voluntary sector respondents agreed. 
     
  • The majority of respondents stated greater promotion and awareness when asked what needed to be done to improve their local Compact
     

Compact Voice is committed to developing a full understanding of how local policy and funding decisions affect the voluntary and community sector, and the annual survey makes a significant contribution to strengthening this knowledge. Later this week, Compact Voice will be submitting Freedom of Information requests to local authorities seeking information about how successfully Compact principles have been implemented locally.

The survey took place in May 2012, and they received 354 responses with 133 from key local Compact workers. Questions were asked on a variety of topics, including who had signed up to local Compact agreements, how frequently people met to discuss their Compact, and the impact of national policy developments on local areas. A report of the findings can be downloaded at www.compactvoice.org.uk/survey2012
