Hounslow Council is very pleased to announce the signing of the new Hounslow Compact on Thursday 3rd November at the Hounslow Civic Centre.
This is the voluntary agreement between public bodies and the voluntary and community sector in Hounslow and was jointly signed by the leader of Hounslow Council, Cllr Steve Curran and the Chair of Hounslow Community Network, Debbie Brenner.
The new Hounslow Compact has been developed in collaboration with all of the key stakeholders in the borough, and will support the vital role played by the voluntary organisations in Hounslow in strengthening local communities.
In Hounslow we have over 600 voluntary and community organisations involving thousands of local volunteers. They provide a diverse range of services across the borough and what they have in common is the ability to improve the lives of those who live, work, visit or volunteer in Hounslow
Leader of the Council, Cllr Steve Curran said,
“As council budgets are being reduced, partnerships will play a greater role in sustaining and increasing gains in the wellbeing and resilience of our communities and the voluntary sector.
This will mean communities doing more and having greater influence over services, including being able to design them, with new opportunities to have a say and get involved in local activities. This new Compact will help us all to work better together as partners for the good of local residents”
Chair of Hounslow Community Network, Debbie Brenner said.,
“We welcome the recognition and commitment shown by the council and the CCG to the voluntary sector as valued partners in the planning and delivery of community services. We look forward to a continued trusting and open relationship so that communities can take a full part in decisions that affect them”
