Similarly, though to a lesser degree, the voluntary sector in the United Kingdom has been replaced in some areas by social cooperatives providing such services as help for social and cultural integration of disadvantaged populations, child care and home care. The number of initiatives may be no more than a few dozen, but there are also many community enterprises to be found, particularly in Scotland. At the same time, voluntary organizations have a strong role in covering some of the shortages that are left by the state and municipal authorities.

The new forms of cooperation and participation that emanate here and contribute to the structure of civil society must not be confused with the traditional repertoire of forms of engagement. New forms of association, projects and initiatives seem to be increasingly the product and expression of cooperation among various stakeholders: ‘corporate citizenship’ from the business side can join the social action of other groups, of professionals, citizens and public authorities. But even if there is a strong element of state action and support, a role for the business community and a defined economic purpose, new associations and services as kinds of ‘social enterprises’ are peculiar to the degree to which they mobilize and cultivate the ‘social capital’ of lively roots in civil society, through partnerships, support networks, trust building, donations and voluntary action.
