Abstract

<p>An important component of civic structures for meeting social needs is the voluntary sector. This chapter describes the UK<p><p>voluntary sector, its fields of activity, its sources of funding and support, the staff it employs, and its operating expenditures. These characteristics of the sector raise a number of questions about its ability to continue to act as one of the mainstays of civic society in the UK.
