An interview with Nicholas Deakin
Rochester, Colin; Jochum, VĂ©ronique (2012)


Professor Nicholas Deakin is best known in the sector for his role as the chair of the independent Commission on the Future of the Voluntary Sector, which published its influential report in 1996. He has, however, contributed a great deal more than that to the voluntary sector both
before and after the work of the ‘Deakin Commission’. In our interview we started with a series of questions about his involvement with the sector and his career, and then moved on to broader questions about the impact of the Commission’s work and recent changes to the sector.
