Building a new relationship between public and voluntary sectors

Children England, the body for organisations working with children, young people and families, along with the TUC, has produced a document that aims

to reunite public sector services, charities and voluntary groups in our shared vision and commitment to children, young people and families.

The ‘Declaration of Interdependence’ seeks to build a new relationship between the public and voluntary sectors, based on shared public service ethos and skilled workforces. Further organisations are invited to join the signatories – the current list, and the declaration (pdf, 390KB) can be found at Also see the background article ‘Trying to change the weather’,
