Serving as an introduction to the UK's voluntary sector, this book builds on the foundations lain in an earlier book by Kendall and Dahrendorf. Using a comparative approach to place the UK voluntary sector in perspective, this book considers the scope, scale, structure, and impact of the voluntary sector's activities on society.

Based on both qualitative and quantitative evidence, this informative book includes statistical mapping of the sector, as well as semi-structured interviews conducted with voluntary sector policy actors. A much-needed addition to the current literature, The Voluntary Sector provides a theoretical framework and in-depth analysis of an increasingly important area.
