Defra Third Sector Team nominated for National Compact Award


We are very pleased to have been shortlisted as a finalist for the Compact Award for Excellence at a National Level in this year’s Compact Awards. This is awarded to a national partnership, Government department or a national third sector umbrella body for outstanding achievement in promoting and implementing the letter and spirit of the Compact.

We were nominated for the award by Peter Couchman, the Chief Executive of the Plunkett Foundation. Peter is a member of our Third Sector Advisory Board and represents the interests of social enterprises. He is also the link between our Advisory Board and Social Enterprise Strategic Partnership.

Will we win? Two members of our Advisory Board (Trewin Restorick and Phil Barton) and two members if the third sector team (Sandra Totterdell and Conor Ritchie) will be going along to the awards dinner on 3/11/09 to find out. We will let you know how we get on.
