LSE Housing Special Event - Breakfast Seminar: Community Assets and the Big Society - who carries the cost?
Many ideas about the 'Big Society' originate from the 19th Century when co-operatives, friendly societies and mutual aid were the survival strategies of the poor, underpinning families and communities in the face of harsh social conditions. In the current policy debates about how to compensate for essential cuts in public spending to reduce the current deficit, the 'Big Society' is supposed to help create stronger communities that can do more to help themselves without first turning to the state for help. In the 'Big Society', communities know how to organise local events and services, they are involved in running local schools, building and managing housing, raising funds for local causes and helping with children, families and young people in need of friendly, caring contact and support. This workshop will examine what mobilises communities to achieve social goals, looking at the critical roles of entrepreneurship, volunteering, co-operation and government.
