  • Big Society Debate
    been struck as I have when schoolchildren come to visit Westminster or when speaking at local schools by how engaged our young people seven and eight year olds are when talking about things in their neighbourhoods that they want to change We need to capture that enthusiasm and engagement and nurture it into adulthood so I welcome the Government s national citizen service which is aimed at 16 year olds and will help to deliver that Our charity and voluntary groups are the face of the big society in our towns and cities and form the backbone of civil society in our communities Reading is no different and has a vibrant and diverse voluntary sector Church communities play a big role in our town providing services that are open to all such as support for the homeless debt counselling advice and schooling for children who have been excluded from mainstream education because of behavioural difficulties Earlier this month I spoke at a local voluntary and community sector networking event in Reading at which there were well over 100 participants representing just about all the key community and voluntary sector groups in the town The event was billed as a cross section conference involving all agencies interested in growing a genuine Big Society in Reading It is absolutely clear that the voluntary and community sector in Reading is keen to grow the big society It wants to do more and believes in community empowerment Many in the sector welcome the Government s agenda of seeking to increase the role of charities and voluntary groups in delivering public services Locally I am very pleased that we are supporting such groups The Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition that now runs Reading borough council has increased funding for voluntary groups and there is much more flexibility in getting funding throughout the year There is now clear recognition which was not there before that voluntary groups should not be treated as a branch of Government that is there to deliver on Government targets but that they are there to deliver for local communities The Conservative run West Berkshire district council which also covers part of my constituency recently wrote to the Department for Communities and Local Government to apply to become a big society vanguard area following Liverpool s withdrawal In my part of Berkshire we certainly know what the big society is all about and we are supporting it More widely the beneficial effects of the Government s policy agenda of empowering local people and communities to take control over their lives can be seen across our constituencies I hope that my constituency will have one of the first free schools in the country in September the Reading free school That initiative which is led by a local parent group called the All Saints Action Group came about because there is huge pressure on school places in Reading Local parents saw an opportunity to set up a new school which is fantastic news for children
