The Portsmouth Compact is important for everyone who works in the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) and public sector in the city.
The Portsmouth Compact outlines how the relationship between the local statutory sector and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector can work more effectively to strengthen communities and improve people’s lives. While there are many differences between the statutory and voluntary sectors, which must be acknowledged and respected, the sectors have much in common. Following a 12-week consultation a refreshed Portsmouth Compact has been produced and was re-launched last year.
Voluntary and statutory organisations in the city are now being encouraged to sign up to the revised Compact.
You can find out more information and access the revised Portsmouth Compact.
