A WEEKLY SOCIAL CHANGE READING LIST
RADAR is a weekly reading list sent round to a few thousand of our best friends by our Deputy Director Ned, every Friday lunchtime.
It started as an email just for the team here, intended to be a pretty unscientific round up of the week’s news/comments/opinions from and about the world of social change.
There’s usually some stuff from UK civil society, some from the US/abroad, and some thinking about personal development and leadership.

Welcome back to RADAR. On the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, this week’s questionable oaths include: women’s marches, the NCS report, community housing, devolved decision-making, the Istanbul Convention, and more.
As we bid goodbye to BO and say hello to DJT, let’s look ahead to tomorrow’s Women’s Marches, taking place around the world. You can find the plan for the London iteration here. If you need some tips on how to make a killer protest sign – look no further. Also, I found Obama’s last interview in office, with some of his former speechwriters, very lovely (here).
The National Audit Office this week published their report on NCS, the government’s flagship youth volunteering programme. With the commitment from government freshly renewed as part of the PM’s Shared Society speech, the report found the programme missing targets and overspending. Here.
