Description/Abstract

This paper summarises a fuller report on research commissioned by the Northern Rock Foundation’s
Third Sector Trends Study (TSTS) to assess the scale and distribution of ‘below-the-radar’ (BTR)
organisations. The specific aim of this study was to provide a picture of the local third sector in North East
England and Cumbria which went beyond organisations appearing on lists provided by regulatory bodies
such as the Charity Commission. Many organisations do not appear on such ‘radars’, with the result that
research risks producing what one commentator described as ‘flat earth maps’ of the third sector
