NCOSS is currently engaged in a number of projects aimed at ensuring the community sector gets the support it needs to have a sustainable future. The projects will deliver a solid evidence base to strengthen advocacy efforts in this area.
Currently available are:
- the State of the community service sector in NSW, from the University of NSW's Social Policy Research Centre, which provides the most comprehensive snap shot of the NSW community sector compiled in years;
- three case studies, undertaken by Tim Childs Consulting, that analyse the experience of funding and programmatic reforms recently undertaken by the NSW Government; and
- a Literature Review which lists a range of resources that develop and consolidate understanding of the Community Services not-for-profit sector and its effectiveness.
