Discusses giving structure to the voluntary sector to provide a sense of unity and common purpose to the numerous people employed, volunteer hours clocked, and organizations at work within it. Deals with the problems of invisibility, inarticulateness and lack of communications skills in the voluntary sector. Highlights the commonalities that unite the Sector and addresses misconceptions, the struggle against free market advocates and other opposing views, and questions left to consider.
