    This article considers the requirement for a regulatory regime for the UK voluntary sector that is sensitive to the unique features of the sector, while also maximizing public trust and safeguarding the interests of wider stakeholders. Regulatory Impact Assessments are important mechanisms in the achievement of this complex and delicate balance. However, these and other regulatory instruments need to be underpinned by a deep understanding of the voluntary sector 'persona', including and most particularly the voluntary ethos that is its core.
