This chapter introduces the concept of ‘below the radar’ community groups. The term is defined as a means of understanding small scale, informal, civil society actions and how these relate to the more formal voluntary sector. It aims to identify the scale and scope of such groups in terms of their ways of operating, their activities and how they are located within the wider contexts of public policy and concepts of ‘community’.

Keywords:   below the radar, community groups, community activities, scale, scope, function
