West Midlands voluntary organisations tackle the economic deficit!

Earlier this summer RAWM CEO Sharon Palmer was invited to join a discussion with Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander to explore innovative ways in which to tackle the deficit as part of the spending review engagement process.

We saw this as a great opportunity for RAWM members to influence the coalition government’s Big Society agenda and invited members to respond to the following question:

  • What suggestions do you have for cutting the deficit and delivering public services more effectively?

As it happened the meeting structure was changed at the last minute to include a list of specific questions and we used your responses to answer these new questions.

The list of new questions is published in our Action News 34 (due for online publication mid November) and we encourage you to send us your responses.  In the meantime, we have published our members’ responses to the original question:
