Civil Society – Running a Voluntary or Community Organisation
This theme is now closed for comment. An announcement on Red Tape Challenge plans will be made in due course. You can read comments made during the theme spotlight (17 May 2012 – 13 September 2012) below.
Voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises are essential to building a stronger society. We know that setting up these groups is not always easy and that’s why we launched our Civil Society Red Tape Task Force. To see what you’ve told us so far and how we’ve acted on your feedback, click here.
But we don’t want to stop there. Through the Red Tape Challenge we continue to seek your views on unnecessary red tape that gets in the way of setting up or running a voluntary or community organisation.
- What unnecessary regulation have you faced when setting up, running or growing a voluntary or community organisation?
- Have you encountered difficulties when attempting to engage volunteers?
- Do rules and regulations prevent you from doing things you would like to do or just make it unnecessarily difficult?
- How could these barriers be reduced or removed?
