Discourses of Voluntary Action at two 'Transformational Moments' of the Welfare State, the 1940s and 2010s
ESRC Grant (ES/N018249/1) ‘Discourses of Voluntary Action at two “Transformational Moments” of the Welfare State, the 1940s and 2010s’ The publication of the Beveridge Report in 1942, and the subsequent establishment of comprehensive welfare services in the UK, was referred to as ‘a revolutionary moment’. The same term has been used to describe the context in which welfare services have been and are still being significantly reshaped since 2010. At these two transformational moments, fundamental questions have been raised about who is responsible for the provision of welfare services. The project study will explore the debates that have taken place on the role, position and contribution of voluntary action in the provision of welfare in the 1940s and 2010s. It will compare and contrast public, political and voluntary sector discourses. The research will contribute to new understandings of voluntary action and to practical action for third sector organisations and policy makers.
