Key 1990s sector report now online

The Third Sector Knowledge Portal has been given permission to put online an electronic version of The Deakin Commission Report, published in 1996, full title ‘Meeting the challenge of change: voluntary action into the 21st century’. It was the key publication on the relationship between the state and the third sector in the UK at the time, and set the civil society agenda for the incoming New Labour government.

A massive 46MB download, even as a zipped pdf file, and not very pretty, from the Portal. A Word version, and the appendices and accompanying literature, are due to follow.
