A voluntary group that supports county residents in need hosted a signing ceremony to mark its support from statutory groups in the area.
Voluntary Action Rutland is celebrating the relaunch of Rutland Compact, a written agreement between the voluntary and community sector and the statutory sector, which is made up of government organisations.
It is designed to build better partnerships between the sectors and improve the way services are delivered to the communities they serve.
It includes three protocols that set out guidance on resolving difficulties that might arise in funding, communication and consultation, and disputes and complaints.
The first agreement was produced in 2005 and a revised, updated version was issued in 2009.
Statutory sector group members who are signed to the agreement are Lt Col Lennon, from Kendrew Barracks, Ian Scarrot, of Leicestershire and Rutland Fire and Rescue Service, Tim Sacks, from East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group, Peter Gover, of Voluntary Action Rutland, Rutland County Council chief executive Helen Briggs and Maj Paul Francis, of army base St George’s Barracks.
