Outsourcing and Austerity : Civil society and the Coalition government / Conference October 5

Cuts and Contracts! – 5th October:
A date for your diary
NCIA along with the TUC, Unite, Unison, NAVCA  and others are organising a major conference in London on the 5th October. Entitled ‘Outsourcing and Austerity: Civil Society and the Coalition Government’, the conference will aim to examine the impact of cuts in public spending, Government attempts to abolish rights, entitlements and services, and moves to contract out much of what remains to the private and voluntary sectors.
All these developments throw down a challenge to those who want to defend the living standards of the worst off, as well as the ‘ungoverned space’ of voluntary action against state co-option or incorporation into the private sector. The conference will offer a chance to hear a range of controversial views and share your own with others. You can find out more here – or by emailing Maxine@grantmoarcommunities.com.
The IDYW campaign will be leading a workshop on the shifting landscape in our work. More details to follow. The event is free, but places limited so book early.
