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.

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.

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”.
