Breakfast with Lord Wei

On Friday 26th November our Chief Executive Anthony Woods-Waters attended a breakfast session with Lord Wei, the government’s chief advisor on ‘big society’ organised by Tyne and Wear and Northumberland Community Foundation. The invited participants had an opportunity to discuss views and experiences around the ‘big society’ agenda.

Anthony said:

 “ This was a hugely useful and informative informal discussion that also highlighted some of the issues, challenges and successes attached to the ‘big society’ agenda in this part of the region. Clearly much of our own activity, both current and historic, is entirely consistent with the aspirations of ‘big society’ in tackling inequality”.
