Abstract

In its 2010 Invitation to Join the Government of Britain, the British Conservative Party wrote the following: ‘We will use the state to help stimulate social action, helping social enterprises to deliver public services and training new community organisers to help achieve our ambition of every adult citizen being a member of an active neighbourhood group. We will direct funding to those groups that strengthen communities in deprived areas, and we will introduce National Citizen Service, initially for 16 year olds, to help bring our country together’ (Conservative Party, 2010:37). These proposals are part of a broader proposed shift from ‘big government’ to ‘big society’ (cf. Kisby, 2010; Smith, 2010).
