The Third Sector Defined:

The Third Sector is made up of community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, social enterprises, co-operatives and individual volunteers (wherever they volunteer). An organisation is regarded as being in the third sector if it:

  • has a positive community purpose

  • is run by an unpaid (or mostly unpaid) committee

  • is not principally set up to distribute profit to shareholders

  • is not run by or affiliated to a political party or a government body
