The Australian Community Sector Survey
Monday, 22nd November 2010 at 12:17 pm
ACOSS is calling for Not for Profit organisations to take part in the Australian Community Sector Survey.
The Survey is an annual national survey collecting data about the community services and welfare sector.
ACOSS says the survey provides an important snapshot of how disadvantaged Australians are faring and is a powerful means of highlighting to government and media the issues facing community services.
ACOSS says the survey should be completed by non-government, Not for Profit organisations providing services directly to the public.
The survey is designed to provide insight into key issues facing service providers, including workforce matters, levels of funding and areas of growing or unmet service demand.
Reports from previous annual surveys have received extensive media coverage, informing community sector advocacy at both state and territory levels. The findings have supported campaigns to improve levels of pay within the sector and to highlight key sector issues such as inadequacies in levels of funding.
The survey closes 5pm, December 3rd 2010. Eligible organisations that complete the survey will go into the draw to win complementary registration and travel costs to the ACOSS 2011 Conference, which is being held in Melbourne on March 29-30
