Gareth Thomas MP, shadow minister for civil society

Shadow minister for civil society Gareth Thomas has tabled a series of Parliamentary questions to minister Nick Hurd about the government's funding of Big Society Network and the allocation of Social Action Fund money.


This Get In flyer was on Big Society Network's website in January 2012

Big Society Network was awarded £200,000 from the government’s Social Action Fund last year ahead of more than 600 other applicants, even though it failed to meet a number of the stated criteria, civilsociety.co.uk can reveal.
 

Steve Wyler, chief executive of Locality

Locality has been awarded a £9.5m contract to deliver a two-year programme to help communities develop their neighbourhood plans.

Rise in volunteering last autumn vindicates Big Society, say ministers

The government has hailed the findings from its new Community Life Survey as evidence that the Big Society is alive and thriving in British communities.

Think tanks should be required by law to list all their donors and the amount of their donations, every year. We would probably find that, indirectly, they are as heavily funded by government as charities but with a lot less value to society.

» Government-funded charities "subvert the democratic process and squander taxpayers' money", think tank says

Sector sees Big Society opportunities despite scepticism

A new Third Sector Research Centre report has suggested that although the voluntary sector is often cynical about the Big Society concept, many still see opportunities – if the government can successfully package the idea.

Sir Stephen Bubb, chief executive, Acevo

A letter from Acevo chief executive Sir Stephen Bubb to the Prime Minister in which he describes the Big Society as “effectively dead” and accuses the government of sidelining charities, secured the front page lead in today’s Times as well as an interview on the Today programme.

Chloe Smith MP

Conservative minister Chloe Smith, who moved from the Treasury to the Cabinet Office in last week’s reshuffle, will be taking responsibility for overseeing the government’s preparation of a statutory lobbying register.

No such thing as the Big Society? Not according to media mentions, anyway

After the Conservatives lauded the creation of a ‘Big Society’ as one of the goals of their government at the beginning of their term, the phrase itself has all but fallen off the media’s radar, according to exclusive data on media reportage of ‘Big Society’.
