Impact of the Changing Funding Environment on the Voluntary and Community Sector

Professor Tony Chapman

Tony Chapman led a study, funded by Government Office North East to support the work of the Voluntary and Community Sector Task Force in 2006.

The study involved a survey of third sector organisations across North East England and informed the work of the task force which was attempting to assess the potential impact of a predicted loss of up to £50m in resources following the European Union regional development and social funding.

A final report was published in 2006. Subsequently an academic article developed the analysis and was published in Policy Studies.
