Our fourth debate looks at how the sector is shaped by its varied and changing relationships with the state, and perhaps increasingly by its relationships with the market. Is the sector’s ‘partnership’ model with the state is being recast as new models of public service delivery are developed, and how is the third sector positioned to take advantage of emerging opportunities? This may involve new hybrid relationships with commercial enterprises and trading/social enterprise.
We ask how funding and business models in the third sector are changing, and debate what marketisation means for the sector’s future.
