Don’t Wait for Permission

Posted on October 30, 2010 by


The Big Society continues to be a subject for debate and controversy. Surely we should all have worked out what it means by now?

But still, the debates rage on.

What is becoming clearer is that the Big Society is not a programme, it is a way of operating. And one of the consequences of this is that no one needs to wait for permission to do Big Society-type things. Some money would be nice, but that is a commodity hard to come by at the moment.

So, if you’ve got an idea you want to implement in your community, whether you want to call it “Big Society” or not, if you wait for permission, you might be waiting for a long time.

Get out and do it now.
