Survey shows charities do not have enough resources to keep up with demand

A survey of more than 1400 staff working in community services, including homelessness, financial counselling and mental health services, has found only 5 per cent believed their service was completely able to meet demand.

The findings, released today, are part of the 2019 Australian Community Sector Survey, conducted by the Social Policy Research Centre at UNSW Sydney in collaboration with Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) and the Council of Social Service Network, and supported by Community Sector Banking.
