This chapter focuses on the governing bodies of voluntary organisations — their ‘boards’, ‘councils’, ‘trustees’ and ‘management committees’. These bodies are a key organisational and legal component of voluntary agencies (Harris, 1996) and experience in the USA suggests that successful implementation of social policy is often dependent on their capacity and cooperation (Saidel and Harlan, 1998). How, then, have UK voluntary boards experienced recent changes in social policy? This chapter seeks to answer this question.
