This discussion focuses on the people involved in the third sector, as volunteers, activists, trustees, frontline staff and managers. For background, we look at patterns and trends in the paid and voluntary workforce, and routes into and out of the sector. We use this to concentrate on the dynamic tension between paid and unpaid roles in the sector. Are volunteers are being marginalised by an increasing emphasis on professionalization and delivery of services, at the same time as expectations and responsibilities may be increasing?
