Public Funds, Private Provision: The Role of the Voluntary Sector

Synopsis

Public Funds, Private Provision analyzes the respective roles of government and the voluntary sector in the financing and administration of social services. Focusing on development in British Columbia from 1983 to 1991, when the Social Credit government actively pursued a policy of privatization, this book examines the growth of the voluntary sector there and presents data which track the impact of privatization on services. It examines the issues of funding and accountability of the voluntary sector as it adopts the public agent role and increasingly delivers services on behalf of government.
