Third Sector

The third sector plays a vital role across our society, with organisations ranging from the arts and entertainment, education and training, healthcare and social care to a host of community activities.

The third sector is an umbrella term that covers a range of not-for-profit organisations with different structures and purposes, which belong neither to the state nor the private sector. This vital sector provides a bedrock of services and support initiatives, education and tuition and research and analysis. Third sector organisations may include:

  • Registered charities,
  • Voluntary and community organisations,
  • Educational establishments,
  • Social enterprises and co-operatives,
  • Private research institutes,
  • Offshoots of government operations, such as housing associations.


The financial and operational needs of third sector organisations are incredibly diverse, while also requiring specific knowledge and expertise when intervention is required.

As value driven non-profits, a primary driver for third sector organisations when approaching restructuring or turnaround projects is to maintain their focus and output with minimum disruption, especially to end users. For this reason, we will always work closely with boards, trustees and staff to fully understand the aims and objectives in order to facilitate your organisation’s future and assist in any financial, legal and governance obligations.
