Factsheet: ACT Community Sector Snapshot
1 April 2023
This factsheet provides a snapshot of key findings for the ACT from the Australian Community Sector Survey (ACSS) 2022 and the report At the Precipice: Australia’s Community Sector through the Cost-of-living Crisis. The survey and report explore financial and workforce challenges confronting community sector organisations, and what is needed to build capacity and sustainability.
This snapshot identifies four key areas of concern for the ACT Community sector, including:
- growing levels of disadvantage and poverty,
- increasing demand for support services,
- insufficient funding, and
- increasing difficulty keeping services adequately staffed.
