Government Organisations The role of the DCMS * The government organisation, the DCMS ( The Department for Culture Media and Sport. This is one of the many civil service departments which serve the elected government of the day, whatever their political views. These departments do not have any political bias. Other examples are: * Treasury - doles out all the money the taxpayers money to other departments, e.g. education, defence, DEFRA (Department for the Farming and Rural Affairs), which is the department for the environment. * The DCMS is responsible for and to oversee : * Government policy on the arts, * Sport * The National Lottery, * Tourism, * Libraries, * Museums and galleries, * Broadcasting, * Film, * The music Industry, * Press freedom and regulation licensing, * Gambling * Historic environment. * The present secretary of the DCMS is Tessa Jowell. ...read more.

Funding * From DCMS * EARNED income: * Donations/ gifts from the public and include tax incentives. * Membership- admission free. * Secondary spend- retail/ catering at their properties. * In 2002 this was the income: * Government grants - �120 million * Admissions - �8.2 million * Retail/ food - �6.9 million * Membership - �3.3 million * Donations - �5.8 million * From the graph, I can see that most of the funding significantly comes from Government funding. The other ways in which the NGO gets its money have little value and shows how much it relies on the government grants. 2. The Voluntary Sector * These organisations have been formed by groups of like-minded people with a common cause. * They are usually non-profit making or charitable. * They are often operated by volunteers. ...read more.
