Stoker named as first Compact chief

John Stoker has been appointed as the first Compact commissioner to improve the working relationship between the government and the voluntary sector.

The post is aimed at strengthening implementation of the Compact, the agreement between the government and voluntary sector on issues including funding.

Stoker, 55, is a former chief charity commissioner for England and Wales and most recently headed the London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund. He will take up his new post on 1 October.

Meanwhile, there were calls this week from the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action to end “bureaucratic” reporting requirements imposed on the third sector by funders.
