The chapter shows that delivery of public services is an important part of the activities of the third sector, but in the past it has been difficult to gain a granular picture of which organisations, and where, are engaged in it. Building on previous usage of data generated by NCVO, as well as large-scale surveys of third sector organisations undertaken in England in 2008 and 2010 which provide considerable facility for disaggregation, the chapter extends the use of them to consider the numbers and characteristics of organisations which say that they are involved in the delivery of public services. Thus it is possible to explore funding sources, location, scale of operation, and income. It also considers organisations’ perceptions of their relationship with various public sector bodies and also about sections of the operating environment.

Keywords:   funding sources, deliver of public services, third sector, scale of operation, operating environment, public sector bodies
