As austerity measures continue, accompanied by ongoing cuts in government services, the importance of community groups to social welfare and well-being becomes ever greater. This book offers a wide range of perspectives on the role and nature of those groups, specifically those that are operating outside the formal voluntary sector in the United Kingdom. These groups, which are unregulated, need more rigorous analysis than in the past as their role and scope continue to increase; this book represents a major step towards better understanding of how they work and what they do.
Review Quotes
Marjorie Mayo, Goldsmiths, University of London
“This fills a significant gap in our understanding of self-organized community activity, based on a range of original research studies. Essential reading for academics, activists, and policy makers alike.”
