Business and Volunteering: A Case Study of England

Rebecca Steel, Jason L. Powell

Abstract


This article analyses the latest state of knowledge on how business principles correlate with the operations of community organisations in England.

In lieu of these participating factors within the social, economic and political environment, to what extent do voluntary organisations draw on skills and expertise acquired from business is an enduring question.
