The report examines time trends (2001-2003), population groups and the results of a pilot of the indicators measured at the small geographic level (local government area).

by Slocock, Caroline | Civil Exchange | Crone, Stephen.

Publisher: Civil Exchange 2012; Democratic Audit 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2012. "The Audit is supported by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation UK." Includes Bibliography.Summary: "The Audit found genuine public interest in getting involved in local issues and in supporting charities but also a ?Big Society gap? between deprived and affluent communities, with cuts in public sector support for charities hitting hardest in the most deprived communities that needed that support the most. The report also identified a lack of buy in to the Government?s goals as a significant obstacle and an implicit bias toward the private sector in the commissioning of public services. It recommended that the Government engage much more closely with the voluntary sector as a key partner to forge common goals, ensure the sector has the right support and giving fair access to Government contracts."Availability: (1)
