Calderdale Council has agreed a new funding programme, Voluntary Sector Commissioning 2015 - 2018. This is to support the kind of work that the voluntary sector does.
To help inform priorities for future funding the Council has:
- considered the fit with the Councils vision and strategic priorities.
- consulted with voluntary and community groups, the wider community and Communities' Scrutiny Panel members. This is to get a better understanding of what local groups need and priorities for funding. The consultation opened on 16th April and ran until 9th July 2014. Feedback from the consultation and discussion at Scrutiny, has been used to shape this funding programme.
- learned from how other councils are working with the voluntary sector. Particularly in similar areas of service delivery, identifying areas of good or innovative practice and comparing relative funding levels.
For details of this funding programme, see: Voluntary Sector Commissioning 2015-18 .
