The Big Society has succeeded and charities have more volunteers and more funding than when the government came to power in 2010, minister for civil society Rob Wilson said yesterday.

 No 10 told Hurd to keep funding Big Society Network despite poor performance

The Prime Minister’s office told Nick Hurd to continue funding Big Society Network even though the then-minister for civil society had raised concerns about its poor performance and financial sustainability, the National Audit Office has found.


Charity Commission won't take action against Society Network Foundation

The Charity Commission will take no action against the trustees of Society Network Foundation, even though it found that the Foundation’s accounts were not Sorp-compliant and that it varied the use of a government grant without obtaining written permission.

National Audit Office building

The National Audit Office has opened a fresh investigation into the funding of Big Society Network, to establish whether the issues identified in its first report indicate “wider systemic problems” within government and the Big Lottery Fund.

Jonathan Jenkins, CEO of Social Investment Business

The chief executive of the Social Investment Business published a tweet on Saturday night shortly after Brooks Newmark resigned, which stated that Nick Hurd was “moved” from his post as minister for civil society.

Martyn Rose, chair, Big Society Network

The trustees of Society Network Foundation have rejected the Cabinet Office claim that the charity ought to repay £34,000 of its Social Action Fund grant, insisting that they had permission to transfer the unspent grant into general funds.


The meeting was held at 10 Downing Street

PTA-UK has revealed that it turned down an invitation from Big Society Network to be a partner in its ill-fated Social Action Fund bid because BSN had intimated, at a meeting at 10 Downing Street, that its grant was “virtually guaranteed”, which PTA-UK thought seemed like “a fix”.
