Devolution and Beyond

Neil McInroy contributes essay on the voluntary sector’s role in an inclusive devolution agenda.

Three years since Devolution, Our Devolution, this compilation of essays from leading thinkers and operators in devolution explores the current context for the voluntary, community, and social enterprise sector.

With six combined authority mayoral elections in May 2017, this is a pivotal time for the devolution agenda – and if it is to be an inclusive one, it is vital that the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector is playing a leading role. These essays, from both within the sector and out, explore how this can be achieved.
