I was in London on Tuesday to meet Liz Lawson, Team Leader, Informal Adult & Community Learning at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. We discussed the Government informal adult and community learning consultation which is about to go live. This will consider how the £210m Adult Safeguarded Learning budget could be best used to support the vision for informal adult an community learning set out in Skills for Sustainable Growth. I also updated Liz on several Voluntary Arts initiatives including Epic Awards, Voluntary Arts Week, the Healthy Social Creative website and our Connected Communities research project into the impact of grassroots arts activities on communities.
