Resolving disputes Syndicate content

It’s all in the timing: act quickly to avoid your cuts consultation complaint falling flat.

recent judgement by the High Court quashed a decision by London Councils to cut £10m of grants to voluntary organisations. The Judge found that the consultation process was flawed and told them to do it again, properly. One of the interesting points about this case for local and national Compacts, is the timing. 


At the risk of sounding like a South London gangster there isn’t enough respect around. I’m not talking about queue jumping here but the way some local councils treat voluntary organisations. At Compact Advocacy we speak to people on a daily basis who have to bear the brunt of councils’ budget cuts and poor decision making. We see it all; hasty decisions behind closed doors, reviews based on flawed data, demands for money to be paid back, retrospective Equality Impact Assessments and refusals to communicate.
