Examining third sector distinctiveness

The next stage of the Third Sector Futures discussion being hosted by the Third Sector Research Centre asks whether the sector has special or distinctive characteristics. (The connected research paper was published a couple of weeks ago.)

Are informal grassroots associations the heart of the sector, are professionalisation and contracts threats, how can the contribution and impact of diverse third sector activities be identified, measured, appreciated and valued? There is a seminar on 21st November and an online discussion on 27th November.
