LCSA Policy Position

LCSA Policy Position 2019 NSW State Election

In the lead up to the 2019 NSW State Election, LCSA developed a policy platform that asked for a government commitment to retain diversity in the community services sector with a range of difference organisations in scope, size and services delivery models.

This submission to government outlines new policies that would ensure the long-term sustainability of Neighbourhood Centres through a Four-Point Plan:

  1. Recognise Neighbourhood Centres as essential social infrastructure
  2. Acknowledge the significant contribution community development activities make to the economic and social wellbeing of communities
  3. Recognise the significant opportunities offered by neighbourhood centres across all human services including child protection prevention and early intervention
  4. Build statewide capability in the governance, management and provision of Neighbourhood Centres
