This study by Julia Unwin and Peter Westland considers the ways in which the voluntary and community sectors have become involved in the Department of Health’s Health Action Zones by presenting three case studies which highlight the challenges of forging meaningful partnerships between the voluntary and statutory sectors.
Report by Julia Unwin. The voluntary sector’s relationship with Government.
This is a discussion paper about the changing relationship between government and the voluntary and community sector. It draws on the experience of, mainly, national organisations working in England to address a range of issues including the opportunities and challenges offered by engagement with a government which aims to be more consultative at both central and local levels.
