On Tuesday I was in London for my regular voluntary cultural sector alliance meeting with the Central Council for Physical Recreation (CCPR), Heritage Link and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO). Among many other topics we discussed: the new DCMS Third Sector Strategy; the Physical Activity Alliance which is working (with Sport England) to realise the Government’s 2012 target to get 2 million people more active (take part in the consultation survey at; the progress of the NCVO Funding Commission and links to the work on philanthropy being undertaken by DCMS; Lord Addington’s private members bill seeking a ‘social tariff’ (somewhere between domestic and commercial) for water rates and music licensing (currently just in relation to sports clubs but could be extended to include other community groups).
