Abstract

This week the outgoing head of Britain’s largest volunteering charity warned that the voluntary sector will be left devastated by government spending cuts. Anne Power and Laura Lane from LSE Housing and Communities undertook a study into soup kitchens run by volunteers for the homeless, and here argue that charitable services to support the homeless and the most vulnerable in society are already stretched to the limit and at serious risk.
