The Future of Doing Good

A new report from the Big Lottery Fund

The context for 'doing good' - creating social value - has changed beyond recognition in recent years. We've experienced financial crisis and global economic slowdown; corporate scandals in industries like banking; government significantly cutting back on public spending; and charities facing increasing debate about their role in creating a good society.

In light of these developments, The Big Lottery Fund hopes to facilitate a debate across the whole of society – communities, charities, social enterprises, businesses and the state – about how ‘doing good’ should evolve in the future.

What does it mean for how we support people to build better communities, and improve their own lives and the lives of those who live around them? What’s the role of charities, businesses, government and communities – and how should we all be working together?
