State of the Community Sector in the ACT

Project Status: Current
People Involved: Natasha Cortis, Megan Blaxland
Research Areas: Policy Design, Impact & Evaluation
Funding Agency: ACT Council of Social Service

The Social Policy Research Centre worked with the Australian Capital Territory Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) to survey community service organisations operating in the ACT. The aim was to improve knowledge of the sector’s organisational, workforce and financial characteristics, and community service leaders’ experiences of the policy and operational environment. Survey findings will raise awareness of issues and challenges affecting community service quality and capacity in the ACT, and will inform the development of an Industry Plan for the community sector in the ACT.
