WELLS, Peter and DAYSON, Christopher (2013). Voluntary and community sector policy under the Coalition Government. People, place and policy online, 7 (2), 91-99.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper reviews changes to the policy environment for the voluntary and community sector since the formation of Coalition Government in the United Kingdom in May 2010. It firstly explores changes to the sector since 2010 both in terms of its economy and also narratives advanced to steer policy. Secondly the paper reconsiders key planks of the Coalition Government's policy agenda, notably for public service delivery, funding, localism and scrutiny. Thirdly, we consider the political dimensions of the policy debate. In conclusion we set out a series of issues which face the voluntary and community sector, its relationship with the state, and wider challenges of democratic legitimacy and renewal. We argue that these themes should not be seen in isolation, but as a series of interacting agendas advanced by actors and institutions through a network of alliances.
