I arrived at the Cabinet Office on Monday morning, for my regular meeting with John Knights and Sophie Chapman of the Office of the Third Sector, in the middle of the fallout from Liam Byrne’s leaked email so I was very disappointed not to be presented with a cappuccino! John, Sophie and I discussed the progress of the Arts Council England/DCMS action plan for the voluntary arts sector and the Office of the Third Sector Olympic volunteering legacy plans. I also told them about the Voluntary Arts Ireland cross-border volunteering in the arts project, ‘Another Way In’, which is being jointly funded by the Department for Social Development of the Northern Ireland Assembly and the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs in the Republic of Ireland. Finally I asked for John and Sophie’s input for the presentation on volunteering and festivals that I am giving next Saturday at the Folk Arts England Conference.
