I was in London on Thursday for a meeting of the Community Sector Coalition. This was a major discussion about the future of the Coalition. We decided on priorities for the CSC’s work and took a radical look at the structure and funding of the Coalition. Ironically, at a time when the voice of the community sector and the role of small, grassroots, community groups seems more important than ever – particularly in relation to the Big Society agenda – the CSC, which brings together national organisations representing community groups, faces significant funding challenges. It was good to achieve some clarity about what the CSC should focus on, particularly if resources are limited. We also identified some alternative approaches that might give the Coalition a greater mandate and reach.

Robin Simpson.
