The Cabinet Office maintains close relationships with many organisations in relation to the big society. In particular, two recent Green Papers on 'Modernising Commissioning' and on 'Giving', and a consultation on 'Supporting a Stronger Civil Society' have drawn in a very good mix of responses from frontline civil society organisations, local authorities and other public sector organisations, private businesses and individuals, and academics.

Summaries of these consultations will be published in due course.
