On Tuesday I was in London for my regular meeting with our informal voluntary cultural sector alliance partners Heritage Link and the Central Council for Physical Recreation. This time we were joined by Oliver Henman from NCVO. As usual we discussed a wide range of topics, including the London 2012 Legacy Action Plan, the Cultural Olympiad, changes to Gift Aid, the Audit Commission consultation on Comprehensive Area Assessments, the Empowerment White Paper, changes to regional Government agencies, the new voluntary and community sector National Support Services, the UKIPO consultation on music licensing and changes to drainage costs (really!). It’s always fascinating to discover which areas represent common interest and which issues turn out to be only relevant to one of us. Our meetings are a very effective information exchange, help us to identify areas in which we might be able to work together and serve as valuable peer support sessions.
