Programme outline 
The Context & Issues:
Organisations of all sizes within the third sector are facing an uncertain future as they grapple with the effects of public funding cuts upon the services they offer to their beneficiaries. But alongside these very real and urgent questions of funding runs the narrative of David Cameron’s Big Society, emphasising a greater role for charities, social enterprises, voluntary and community bodies in public service ownership and delivery. The challenge is now for the public and third sectors at both national and local levels to identify their roles within the Big Society, and to reconcile ideas with practical local implementation.

The Issues:
Throughout the day delegates will have the chance to engage with the panel, investigating key issues such as:
The role of the state and the role of civil society in delivering the Big Society
The key messages for the third sector in the forthcoming Public Services White Paper
What are the financial constraints and realities of the coming years?
What funding opportunities are presented by the Big Society Bank and the Transition Fund?
How can charities and community organisations make the most of social investment funding?
How will the community organiser programme be structured and what will their roles be?
How can the sector use local knowledge to mobilise and engage the Big Society?
How to build stronger ties and understanding between local government and the third sector?
How to build stronger inter charity collaboration and resource sharing?
