"From state welfare to social welfare" - David Cameron at NCVO

David Cameron spoke at NCVO this week about the sector's role in delivering social justice. In a speech which he described as 'the big idea at the heart of our plans for social justice', the Conservative leader said:

"I have great ambitions for the social sector in this country, and I make no apology for that. I simply do not believe that we will make serious progress in tackling relative poverty and deprivation, in creating communities fit for the 21st century, unless we inspire a revolution in social provision."

Cameron's speech "From state welfare to social welfare" followed the recent launch of the Social Justice Policy Group's Breakdown Britain report.
