Wolverhampton and London

Wolverhampton City Council has decided not to reduce its £2.97m funding for the sector. One organisation has suggested that the Compact has helped to keep the budget at existing levels. The trade union, Unite, has claimed that four hundred voluntary sector projects in London could lose funding if London Councils ends its £26.4m London Boroughs Grants Scheme next year. Currently individual councils putting money into the scheme, but a review, which has just finish, has considered whether it would be best for councils to retain and spend the money locally. Unite is concerned that this change, combined with a lack of ring fencing for any specific projects, could mean that funding will be cut off for recipient projects.
