There’s an interesting and thoughtful end-of-year editorial by Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector magazine here in which he considers the state of the sector in 2011 and does a good job of analysing rhetoric and reality as regards the big society and public spending cuts. Well worth a read.
Can I also take this occasion to remind you that BSSEC is compiling a formal response to the Office for Civil Society’s consultation on infrastructure support — as mentioned in this post.
We’ll try and reflect your views too if you tell us what they are — please read the post and let us know of anything you’d like to see added to the response. You’ll need to send comments to me by close of business on Jan 4th — details in the earlier post.
With best wishes for 2011 from BSSEC and Birmingham’s social enterprise community.
