A look at third sector policy
Better get used to bitten fingers
The third sector has enjoyed a higher profile in political debate than any point over the last hundred years or more. In this article for House Magazine, Pete Alcock talks about the focus of this policy interest toward the sector, and some of the contradictory implications of these.
Critical to policy making toward the sector, Pete argues, is the recognition of its enormous diversity. Yet cutting across this diversity are characteristics that distinguish the sector, which policy makers must support and respect.
The House Magazine is parliaments weekly ‘in house’ magazine, managed by a cross party editorial team.
