Big Society and Small Business

We're looking for ideas from budding entrepreneurs, inventors, charities, business people, volunteers, social enterprises and cooperatives, on how we can use the Big Society idea to increase local prosperity.

If you are a business person or work in the voluntary sector we'd like to hear your ideas on how we can work better together.

  • How could well established business do more to share expertise?
  • How could business train/mentor a social enterprise/mutual and gear them up to take on new clients and contracts?
  • How can budding entrepreneurs be given unneeded office space to develop their new ideas?
  • How can local businesses provide short term volunteer programmes for the unemployed to make people work ready?

If you have a Big Society idea you want to share with us, please use this online form.
