This collection of papers marks the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the Third Sector Research Centre in England, and we are grateful to the editors of this journal, Ruth Simsa and Taco Brandsen, and the journal publishers, Springer, for the opportunity to make available contributions made by TSRC to Voluntas since 2009.
TSRC represented a major investment in scholarship in this field, which – in the UK at least – had been somewhat underdeveloped, though this is not to decry the considerable efforts of many prominent British researchers. With core funding (from the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council, the Office for the Third Sector, and the Barrow Cadbury Trust) supporting us until 2014, we established a substantial critical mass of academic faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students at the universities of Birmingham, Southampton, Kent and Middlesex. Since 2014 the Barrow Cadbury Trust and the University of Birmingham have generously contributed further support and we have had a number of successes in securing research grants. Read more .
