This book brings together contributions by acknowledged British experts to examine the shifting relationship between welfare policy and the voluntary sector. Taking into account the fundamental reassessment of the role of the state in welfare and the funding and organization of the delivery of health care, social services, housing, and more, it asks what the implications are for voluntary sector organizations and in what specific ways they are responding to their new expanded role.
