Two days after the Chancellor unveiled his latest plan to cut public spending and outsource large swathes of public services, the minister for civil society has outlined his ideas for boosting the capacity of charities and social enterprises to provide them.  Tania Mason reports.

Geoff Mulgan, chief executive of Nesta

After the National Audit Office published its report into Big Society Network grants and a former Nesta trustee tweeted that Nesta was also “forced” to fund BSN back in 2010, Nesta chief executive Geoff Mulgan conducted a review into his organisation’s support for the agency.  Tania Mason analyses his findings.


He was just so nice - an over used word, but I can only ever see Daniel with a smile on his face. Genuine, wickedly funny, intelligent, oozing with foresight and interest.
