English third sector experts from the worlds of practice and academia met on 23 February 2016 in London as part of the process of involving national stakeholders in the implementation of the TSI research project. The purposes of the meeting were:
(1) to review Draft Policy Briefings reports, summarising (a) the findings from Workpackage 5 of TSI in the UK, focussing on perceived barriers to third sector development in England (Briefing one); and (b) in a supplementary analysis undertaken as a voluntary initiative collaboration by the University of Kent and TSRC, examining differences in the experience of barriers between organisations of different types (in terms of scale, policy field, age and other factors) revealed by the on-line survey (Briefing two);
(2) to develop an indicative consideration of what might be future priority areas for policy and research attention, in the light of these findings.
