TSRC – the UK's centre for civil society research
The Third Sector Research Centre works to enhance knowledge through independent and critical research. In collaboration with practitioners, policy makers, and other academics, we explore the key issues affecting charities and voluntary organisations, community groups, social enterprises, cooperatives and mutuals.
Over 2105-2016, TSRC worked with 15 (of 150) Big Local areas to explore the dimensions of resident led change.
Austerity measures and welfare reform are contributing to a particularly unsettled environment for third sector organisations. Many are grappling with substantial change. The TSRC will be exploring how change is created, contested, understood and experienced within the third sector.
