Public Service Futures Research Report Volume 6: Civil Society

Wednesday 6 July 2011

Public Service Futures is sponsored by OPM to bring together visionary thinkers with decision-makers across the public sector to decide how best to prepare for the future. This edition, volume six, discusses civil society, and specifically one of the Coalition Government’s key policy platforms – the Big Society. What will be the effect of devolving power to local communities and the front line? How can we help citizens to get involved and volunteer in their communities? Steve Moore, the  chief executive of the Big Society Network, introduces it.
