What now for the voluntary sector?


The Carnegie Challenge Debate took place on 24 November 2014 at the Wales Millennium Centre. The event was sponsored by the Carnegie UK Trust and was titled ‘Time for a new social contract?’. The debate was organised by the Welsh Council for Voluntary Action which held their annual conference in Cardiff this year. 

On the panel were Julia Unwin of Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Dr Angela Donkin of UCL Institute of Health Equity, myself representing Gorwel and Martyn Evans of Carnegie UK Trust, who chaired the debate.

The debate proved to be lively with much discussion about whether the state should allow communities a greater say in decision-making and designing the services that make up their daily lives. The panel was joined by people from all across the voluntary sector.
