Defra's third sector strategy

Defra’s Third Sector Strategy signals the Department’s commitment to working with the third sector (which includes voluntary and community organisations, charities, NGOs, co-operatives and mutuals and social enterprises). The sector makes a vital contribution to Defra’s strategic objectives. The Strategy is a result of a participative process which has involved third sector stakeholders, our staff and our delivery bodies.
