Example text

Health care, particularly mental health, and nursing care are perhaps the best examples. 3 were development and housing, and international activities. In the former case, expansion in this period built particularly upon an existing legacy of growth in the housing associations segment (as we will discuss in more detail in Chapter 7). Here, while there was competition within the sector between organizations, as a sector these organizations’ market niche in publicly supported social housing remained institutionally insulated from private sector competition, by rules forbidding the latter’s access to grants (although government financial support has itself become both more business-like and, since 1995, more scarce).

That compromise and the division of labour between public authorities and private nonprofit institutions was to become the strongest and most enduring pattern of government–nonprofit relationship in Germany: the principle of subsidiarity (p. 54). . the principle of subsidiarity means that the state takes on only those functions that the [voluntary] private sector cannot meet, and that larger units, such as central government, concern themselves only with tasks that are beyond the capabilities of smaller units, such as regional and local government, but also private units, such as the congregation and the family.

For example, in social services, in the residential care field, paid workers dominate with a limited, supplementary role for volunteers; however, in day care and low intensity care and support outside the mainstream social care system, volunteers play the leading role. 4 As Chapter 7 indicates, growth in the voluntary sector during this economic recession was not limited to the ‘general charities’ considered by Hems and Passey (1998): housing associations, excluded by definition from their data, expanded particularly rapidly over this period.
