intermediate group

or

secondary group

any group (e.g. VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATION) that can be seen as occupying an intermediate position between central state institutions and PRIMARY GROUPS such as the family or other face-to-face groupings. The number and variety of such intermediate and secondary groups is sometimes suggested as providing an important counterbalance to tendencies towards MASS SOCIETY in modern industrial societies.
