TALKING ABOUT VOLUNTARY ACTION AND THE WELFARE STATE: HISTORICAL REFLECTION

 

Tuesday, 30 April 2019

9.30am - 12.30pm (including lunch)

Society House, Regents Wharf, 8 All Saints Street, London N1 9RL

Who is responsible for the provision of welfare services? A chance to explore and challenge the findings of a study into the changing boundaries between voluntary sector and state provision in the 1940s and 2010s.

The Discourses of Voluntary Action study has been exploring transformations in provision of welfare services, and the changing boundaries between the state and the voluntary sector at key moments in the 2010s and the 1940s. The study included an examination of Children England's contribution.

They would like to share emerging findings with people from across the voluntary, community and public sectors. They ask participants to challenge and question their findings, to extend their thinking, and to help them to work through the implications. This will be a highly interactive workshop that will inform their final stages of analysis.
