Government gives details of Big Society programme

The new coalition government today provided details of the Big Society programme – which I’ve written about previously here. It was the the first major policy statement issued jointly by David Cameron and Nick Clegg, following a round table event at 10 Downing Street with civil society activists and leaders. Nat Wei, co-founder of Big Society Network – who I interviewed here – will be made a member of the House of Lords and will work alongside the new Minister for Civil Society, Nick Hurd, to lead on the delivery of the programme.

    I like the big society but will parents really HAVE TIME to establish their own schools…it needs to be properly thought out.
