The changing voluntary sector – workforce issues

Two further reports have been published by the Inquiry into the Future of Voluntary Services run by National Coalition for Independent Action.

One examines the current state of volunteering, and how commissioning has accelerated the rise of the ‘workplace model’ and the formalisation of volunteer management, driving out the maverick spirits – ‘Impact on Volunteering’, 215KB pdf.

The other looks at the effects of outsourcing and cuts to funding on those paid to work in the sector, along with trades unions – ‘More for Less’, 1.3MB pdf.

Both available via NCIA news item.
