Australian Policy Online has published an article about the the Centre for Policy Development’s new report, “Big Society and Australia“. The report presents a comprehensive analysis of the UK’s ‘Big Society’ policies and programs and examines their potential impact if adopted and implemented in Australia.
The article summarises the Big Society changes made since David Cameron’s election as British Prime Minister. These include an £81 billion cut in public spending over four years, reducing the UK’s public service by up to 710,000 public servants over six years, a £5 billion funding cut to the UK’s community sector and funding cuts of £110 million to 2,000 UK charities.
Change can happen faster than you think – help us seize the moment and point to the alternatives.
