This seminar was a timely opportunity to examine the future for the third sector, as the Government moved forward with a Big Society agenda that depended on a renewed role for charities and similar organisations, and for businesses to widen engagement with the communities they work in.
Delegates reviewed the early impact of the Big Society and discussed what more needs to be done to raise and maintain levels of community engagement - as well as the implications for the community and voluntary sector. With the Localism Act opening up public service contracts to a wider range of providers, sessions considered the challenges and opportunities for third sector organisations, and evaluated the implications of new models of social finance, it included Social Impact Bonds. The seminar took place against the backdrop of the review of the Charities Act 2006, which re-examined charity law going forward, and was expected to cover transparency in funding and campaigning activity.
