We have a strong track record of working effectively together with the voluntary and community sector to deliver a diverse range of quality services to our communities.

These arrangements are essential to:

  • Foster aspiration, independence and personal responsibility
  • Promote the economic prosperity of Nottinghamshire and safeguard our environment
  • Make Nottinghamshire a safer place to live

The diversity of the voluntary sector in Nottinghamshire, in skills, size, and aspirations also requires a strong infrastructure that assists in:

  • delivering good quality services to the local community
  • levering in additional resources from a range of sources
  • supporting voluntary action for the benefit of the community
  • promoting good practice in volunteering
  • acting as a link between service users, providers and statutory agencies.

A range of measures help the voluntary sector in their delivery of local services including:

  • the development of 'in principle' 3 year grant aid agreements with annual monitoring and review arrangements
  • the development of jointly funded grant aid agreements with other main core funders such as district councils and Health Authorities
  • the development of a joint Compact between the voluntary and community sector and local statutory organisations in Nottinghamshire
  • supporting and maintaining regular liaison with the voluntary sector
  • the development of a Corporate Grant Aid Strategy
