Charities and ministers yesterday unveiled a set of guidelines to stimulate greater involvement by charities in issues such as social exclusion and the `New Deal' initiative, the Financial Times reports (p11).

The paper says the compact shows that ministers are increasingly reliant on the voluntary sector to deliver services to the public.

Negotiated over the past year with the home office, it covers issues such as government funding for charities and the need for voluntary organisations to keep high standards of management and accountability.

The paper says the guidelines are the first statement from government that it acknowledges - and will reward through funding - the social contribution the sector makes.
