Research published on the Compact and PB

The Commission for the Compact have published some research on how the Compact which is between the community and voluntary sector and the local public sector applies to PB projects

Research published on the Compact and PB

Participants in Luton

Produced by the Commission for the Compact in collaboration with the Participatory Budgeting Unit, the research report analyses how the Compact partnership working agreement applies to participatory budgeting projects.  It demonstrates which specific Compact commitments apply to participatory budgeting and when to implement them.

Sir Bert Massie CBE, Commissioner for the Compact, said:

"A good deal of the cross-sector partnership working in our streets and neighbourhoods now happens as part of participatory budgeting projects.  Our research has shown that the Compact is extremely relevant to this increasingly popular approach to allocating public money."

The report is the result of research that included written analysis of where the Compact and PB overlap, followed up by interviews with different stakeholders in PB projects in Southampton, Stockton on Tees and Newcastle.

The report is published on the Commission for Compact's website and also on the PB Unit's site.  You can download a copy here .  A short checklist for PB organisers will be published shortly, summarising the key compact commitments that relate to PB.
