Social Sector Transformation Fund:
In November 2020, the NSW Government established a $50 million Social Sector Transformation Fund (SSTF), to help small to medium sized charities and not-for-profits adapt their operations, and invest in new systems and technologies, so they could continue to provide responsive services to their communities.
In announcing the SSTF, NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet acknowledged the crucial role that small and medium-sized charities and not-for-profits play in the lives of vulnerable people right across the State, and that the sector was hit hard by the pandemic with surges in demand and increased costs of providing COVID-safe services.
The SSTF was rolled out in three parts. These free advisory and information services are the third part of the program.
Services will be provided in:
- Digital and Information Technology
- Legal Advice
- Governance and Strategy
- Evaluation and Service Delivery
- Leadership and Workforce Development
The overall objective of the services is to assist small to medium not-for-profits to remain efficient, effective and viable.
The services will conclude on 30 September 2022.
