The Bexley Compact commits both the statutory sector and the voluntary and community sector (VCS) in Bexley to achieving the following four principles:
1. A strong, diverse and independent voluntary and community sector
2. Effective and transparent design and development of policies, programmes and public services
3. Responsive and high-quality programmes and services
4. Clear arrangements for managing changes to programmes and services
In aiming to achieve these four principles, we have asked that the voluntary and statutory sectors make some commitments in their process and practices, and in their thinking and behaviour.
