Voluntary or not

Is the voluntary sector ‘voluntary’? By and large the stress in recent years has been on professional staff and professional cultures. 

So, it is a good balance to see new figures from the Charity Commission which show there are more unpaid roles as trustees (925,000) than paid staff (660,000). Meanwhile, some of the most interesting trends are towards membership and accountability. If anything, the best of the voluntary sector is becoming more voluntary.
