It is hosted by the University of Birmingham, in partnership with the University of Southampton.
It will carry out and make available research that will help government and sector stakeholders make informed decision about how to enhance the effectiveness of the sector.

Policymakers and practitioners across the sector are working on plans for their detailed research programmes.

The Centre director is Professor Pete Alcock with Professor John Mohan as the deputy director.

The Centre is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Office of the Third Sector (OT)S and the Barrow Cadbury Trust .
