The state of the community service sector in New South Wales 2014

Published Literature


Cortis, N., & Blaxland, M.

The research was commissioned by the Council of Social Service of NSW (NCOSS).

This report presents findings from a survey of non-government, not-for-profit community service organisations operating in New South Wales (NSW). These organisations are major providers of supports to people experiencing poverty and disadvantage, and engage extensively with government agencies, each other, and service users and volunteers. The survey was conducted online over three weeks during February 2014. It was completed by 576 organisations, representing a 37.6% response rate. The findings provide information about the characteristics of organisations, and trends in experiences and perceptions across the sector as a whole, along with notable differences based on the size of organisations, their location, and the main type of services they deliver.
