Big Society relevant links
There are a number of local and national organisations in the UK which are supporting and working for the principles contained in the Big Society. Some examples of national organisations are the following:
A national federation of community organisations. It stands for the collective action of ordinary people within their neighbourhood through inclusive, locally-rooted and accountable community organisations.
The Big Society Network
“A group of citizens frustrated with the problems of modern Britain - from social isolation to community disintegration - and seeking to enable people to get involved in local solution”.
Their goal is to build the power of communities who work together for the common good.
Their mission is to reach out and unleash the energies of people who can transform the world in which they live. They call these people social entrepreneurs.
