The community sector is going through a period of crisis. Its funding is at risk, its voice is ignored, and its role is increasingly demarcated by the state. This crisis is being experienced in a context of severe austerity policies, however, its roots lie in the time of a booming economy. Now a survival agenda dominates the sector. Challenges of imagination in, organisation of, and approach by the community must be met if the community sector is to renew and re-energise and move beyond this stifling survival agenda.
