Psychology Press, 1995 - Social Science - 260 pages
In the 1990s, the voluntary and charity sector is being forced to become an increasingly important provider of health and social welfare in Britain. How can it respond to this pressure, who is running it and how should it be managed? As well as offering a full overview of the voluntary sector, the editor and contributors examine its hitory and importance within welfare provision and its current position and responsibilities. They also offer practical guidance for and analysis of the issues facing the voluntary sector today, including its legal framework in the UK and EC, fundraising, management and accountability.
