The UK voluntary sector in the 1990s: its human and financial resources

Jeremy Kendall, Martin Knapp

There are increasing demands on, and growing expectations of, the voluntary sector.

But these have not been informed by a clear understanding of what the sector is, how it is resourced and how it relates to other economic and social sectors. A study by Jeremy Kendall and Martin Knapp, at the Personal Social Services Research Unit, University of Kent at Canterbury, aimed to provide a clear and comprehensive map of the UK voluntary sector's economic resources in the context of a wider study analysing the sector's social, historical and policy contributions. Their work was part of a 13-country comparison led by Lester Salamon and Helmut Anheier at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA. Detailed statistical data were collected in the UK, US, Italy, Hungary, France, Germany and Japan.
