CLG announce Best Value guidance for local authorities

Funding for the voluntary and community sector will face significant changes across the country; as a result CLG Secretary of State Eric Pickles released a one page summary on the Duty of Best Value. The guidance clarifies the ways in which local authorities can determine the value of service providers.

 In the introduction, Mr. Pickles summarised, “Local councils have been freed from excessive and prescriptive guidance and duties in return for a ‘social responsibility’ deal which asks that they continue to give support to local voluntary and community groups and small businesses.”
