STAR Procurement (a shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils), Glossary of Terms, published in May 2019, suggests that voluntary, community and social enterprises (including co-operatives) are:
‘Sometimes referred to as ‘the Third Sector’, ‘Social Purpose Sector’ or ‘Civil Society’, organisations that are independent of government and are constitutionally self-governing, usually with an unpaid voluntary management committee. They exist for the good of the community, to promote social, economic, environmental or cultural objectives to benefit society as a whole, or particular groups within it.’
