This briefing provides a short background on the Big Society, a summary of the key elements of the Big Society agenda and a short discussion of some of the themes emerging in the debate. The briefing stresses the importance of close cooperation between local government authorities and voluntary and community organisations throughout the development of the Big Society agenda. It is concluded that the Big Society agenda includes a number of the priorities identified in NCVO's Good Society Manifesto but, that at this early stage it is not clear how these proposals will develop, and how they will fit with other policy objectives and priorities.
