Voluntary organisations and the recession
Wilding, Karl (2010)


The global recession has shaken the confidence of and prospects for the UK voluntary and community sector. Although the sector has benefited from a long period of sustained investment matched by public and political support, the ability of organisations to plan for and adjust to the
new economic reality is still hampered by a limited evidence base. Looking forward, managing relationships with government in a period of substantive public expenditure cuts is likely to be the biggest test of the sector’s ability to survive, and even thrive, in a recession.
