Many nonprofits provide services to the public, but a small number operate on special terms with government, inasmuch as their voluntary boards don’t exercise control over the remuneration of their employees because these are treated as public sector workers.

Effectively these are “quasi-public bodies”. Here’s who they are:

44 section 38s.

22 higher education institutions.

281 local providers of family support, drugs rehabilitation, citizens’ advice and other local development supports and services, directly controlled by government.
