(p.139) seven The third sector and community cohesion in deprived neighbourhoods
Community cohesion in crisis?

Peter Wells

Policy Press

This chapter provides an assessment of the roles that third-sector organisations operating in deprived neighbourhoods have been given in the community-cohesion agenda. It stresses the need to understand the complex nature of the third sector. Data from the New Deal for Communities evaluation is used to challenge some of the assumptions about the nature of diversity and attachment in deprived communities and the contribution of third-sector organisations to foster cohesion. The chapter concludes that there is a need for widening the conceptualisation of community-cohesion interventions to cover all of the contributions which third-sector organisations make within local neighbourhoods.

Keywords:   third-sector organisations, third sector, nature, New Deal, diversity, community cohesion
