Barnet's Big Society
Localis have published the first in a series of pamphlets on the Big Society. Barnet’s Big Society: a practical perspective from local government, a collaborative effort between Localis and the London Borough of Barnet, outlines Barnet’s interpretation of the Big Society and what it means for local government, and highlights a range of innovative case studies of the Big Society in action from across the borough.
The launch of the pamphlet, on Wednesday 15th June in Barnet, was marked by a speech from Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Charities, Social Enterprise and Volunteering Nick Hurd MP.
