Winners of 2012 Compact Awards announced
The winners of this year’s Compact Awards have been announced at a ceremony held by Compact Voice last night in Westminster, which was hosted by Simon Blake OBE, Chair of Compact Voice, and Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society.
The Compact Awards recognise excellent partnership working taking place between local and national government and the voluntary and community sector.
The winners have displayed a remarkably proactive, creative and forward-looking approach to partnership working to achieve positive outcomes for communities.
Announcing the winners, Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society, said:
"We want to support communities to work together to make a real difference. The Compact Award winners show what can be achieved when people work well in partnership. I would like to congratulate all the winners and shortlisted entrants, and encourage others to look to their impressive example."
