You may have heard that the Australian Community Sector Survey 2019 is currently open. Staff in community sector organisations are welcome to complete it using this URL:

The researchers value your input!  The results will help build a picture of the issues affecting community sector staff and organisations across Australia. They hope to hear from as many staff as possible, to ensure we capture a wide variety of perspectives and build an accurate picture. You are welcome to share the link with your colleagues and with other community sector staff in your networks.

The survey takes around 10-15 minutes for most people to complete, but may take a little longer for CEOs and senior managers, who are asked some extra questions about their organisation. If you complete it, you will be given the option to enter a draw to win an iPad or shopping vouchers, as a token of thanks. The survey will close on Friday 1 November 2019.

Information provided in the survey is confidential. Results will be aggregated and used to develop a report for ACOSS and the COSS network, and made publicly available. The survey will help highlight the contribution made by the community sector, and the views of sector staff on what is needed to help strengthen it.
