About this book

Introduction

This book brings together papers by voluntary sector scholars which were specially commissioned to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the LSE's Centre for Voluntary Organisation. The papers address key issues currently facing UK voluntary sector managers including: What place do values have? How is accountability achieved? How can organisational change be handled? Are governing bodies needed? What kind of training is appropriate? Should volunteers be managed? And what does contracting do to voluntary agencies?
