The Compact Kite Mark: Working Together in Warrington.

What is the Compact Kite Mark?

The Compact Kite Mark aims to promote the value of partnership working between the third sector and the public sector in Warrington. Organisations who have signed up to the Local Compact will receive a Compact Kite Mark which demonstrates that they are adhering to its principles.

Within each organisation a nominated individual(s) is responsible for promoting and assisting in the implementation of Our Local Compact for Working Together in Warrington, ensuring it is understood by an appropriate number of employees or volunteers and used within their individual organisation, department or sector and through local partnerships, forums and events.

These individuals can provide assistance if the Local Compact is not being followed by government, public bodies or third sector organisations.

The Compact Kite Mark plays a crucial role in raising awareness and promoting the Local Compact in Warrington and organisations who have been endorsed have agreed to commit to its principles.
