National Social Services Consultation

The Australian Department of Social Services (DSS) is undertaking a national scoping study focused on outcome and impact measurement within the social services sector.

If your social enterprise is in the social services sector, you are invited to participate in the national consultation. DSS has commissioned Urbis to undertake this consultation and has prepared a consultation paper, which explains what they’re doing, why they’re doing it and what they would like to hear from you about.

At the request of SENVIC and interstate networks, Urbis has extended the consultation period  until Tuesday 19th May  and have added additional roundtables.

If this is relevant to your social enterprise, it would be great if you could participate in the consultation to share your perspectives.
