Remember - voice your views in the OCS consultation: Supporting a Stronger Civil Society

Supporting a Stronger Civil Society is an Office for Civil Society consultation on improving support for frontline civil society organisations.

Through this consultation, the Office for Civil Society is looking for thoughts and ideas on the role it can play in ensuring that civil society in England has the advice, support and influence that will help it to modernise and respond to change.

The consultation asks for specific feedback on proposals in six key areas:

  • Easier access to advice through online services
  • Access to wider sources of support, particularly from the private sector
  • Direct support to frontline organisations through bursaries
  • Consolidation of support services through merger and collaboration
  • Better local public sector partnerships
  • Better partnerships between Central Government and national infrastructure.

The consultation is open until 6 January 2011 and the easiest way to respond is to read the consultation document, and then go to the online survey to send in your response. There are also alternative ways you can respond: Find out more about how to respond to the consultation here.
