This book, written by social policy and welfare experts, sheds light on this neglected area of social policy.

Across the UK and Australian public, community and voluntary sector, we’re applying proven methodologies to solve complex problems that require an intelligent partnership approach.

  This paper describes a pilot study involving interviews with representatives from eight Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations. The purpose of the study was to explore the notion of 'hard to reach' and perceptions of the barriers and facilitators to accessing services for 'hard to reach' groups from a voluntary and community sector.   For this new edition the book has been completely revised, bringing the subject up to date in line with recent developments. Key changes address issues surrounding government policy and public sector leisure provision, the National Lottery, global conditions such as the world economic climate and the European Union, and communication and travel advances.
