YouthNet chairman Martyn Lewis hosts a debate about the Big Society featuring Steve Moore of the Big Society Network and Anna Coote, Head of Policy at the New Economics Foundation.

Steve and Anna each present their views on what is the Big Society is and whether it can be beneficial for British society.

Steve Moore states, "The essence of Big Society is about individuals coming together to form groups who will take social action. There is already a huge groundswell of people who are already part of it."

Anna Coote added: "If you put Big Society together with the public spending cuts they spell the end of the Welfare State and the ones who will suffer most will be those who are poorest and least powerful."

Recorded on Wednesday 3rd November 2010 at The Communications Group, London.
