Voluntary Sector in Transition: Hard Times or New Opportunities? by Milbourne Linda
Voluntary and community organisations have moved to the centre of political debates as the new UK government reduces the scope of the state and locates solutions in civil society. This new book explores the extensive growth and reshaping of the voluntary sector following sweeping changes to social and welfare policy over 30 years. It draws on contemporary social and organisational theory and debates to consider whether surviving in the voluntary sector now depends on realigning activities and compromising independent goals and values.
