A joint initiative of ACOSS, the COSS Network and Community Sector Banking
This Demand for Community Services Snapshot 2019 is a report of demand for community services in 2019 based on information derived from the forthcoming Australian Community Sector Survey (ACSS) 2019. This research was conducted by the Social Policy Research Centre at UNSW Sydney in collaboration with the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) and the network of Councils of Social Service of Australia (COSS Network), supported by Community Sector Banking.
The survey was completed by 1,454 community sector staff, including 406 organisational leaders, in October 2019. In the 2019 ACSS, several survey questions were asked to capture how community sector organisations were positioned to deal with the demand for their services. Survey questions captured community sector staff and leaders’ experiences of service demand, how demand for their services is changing, and how unmet demand is impacting the community. The responses were clear.
