I intend to look at the impact on state-third sector relations of the requirements in the Government of Wales Act 2006 to have a Voluntary Sector Scheme. The legislation states that Welsh Ministers must specify in the Voluntary Sector Scheme (now known as the Third Sector Scheme) how they will provide & monitor assistance to voluntary organisations AND consult voluntary organisation on matters affecting/concerning them. I am interested in the nature of the assistance provided to the third sector and the mechanisms for engagement of the third sector.
