State and the Voluntary Sector
The State and the Voluntary Sector is ideal for anyone who wants to quickly and clearly understand the statutory funding environment.
The voluntary sector in modern Britain is a major force for social and economic change. With an expenditure of over £33 billion and a paid workforce of 634,000, the voluntary sector is also a key player in the modernisation and delivery of public services.
This is in no small part due to a significant expansion in the scale and scope of collaboration with government over the last decade, an expansion underpinned by statutory funding. At a time when public expenditure is under pressure, policy-makers and voluntary sector leaders need the latest intelligence on the statutory funding relationship.
The State and the Voluntary Sector provides a unique, easy-to-understand analysis of the funding relationship between the two sectors. It is an indispensible guide for policy-makers and voluntary sector leaders and anyone interested in the sector.
