Taking Part: Encouraging involvement in Big Society: Cultural and Sporting Perspective

E-mail Print

The current emphasis (2011) on creating a ‘big society’ is underpinned by the desire to get people more involved in their communities, for example by volunteering or supporting a charitable organisation.

Taking Part collects detailed information on the extent and nature of volunteering and charitable giving in the cultural and sporting sectors1.

Building the Big Society is particularly relevant to the cultural and sporting sectors because they rely so heavily on large numbers of volunteers and charitable support in order to thrive.

Editor's comments - [  This report seeks to explain and better understand the Big Society landscape in relation to culture and sport. It looks specifically at those who give time or money to the cultural and sporting sectors for which the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is responsible (i.e. the arts, heritage, museums, galleries and archives, libraries and sport), and provides a detailed demographic profile of those contributing to the Big Society, their engagement in and attitudes towards the cultural and sporting sectors and their wider public participation.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
