The Australia We Want provides the first ever benchmark of how Australia, and each State and Territory, is performing against values prioritised by leaders in the charities and not-for-proft sector. This second report provides real insights into how well we are enacting our values. It tells us even more about how we are progressing towards that imagined Australia, and the findings make for interesting reading.
For each of the last two federal elections the CCA has organised a Pre-Election Forum at the National Press Club where the major political parties have outlined their policies for the charities and not-for-profit sector. This year, CCA is delighted to be taking the Pre-Election Forum to the sector at the Connecting Up Transform Conference.
Sector leaders are encouraged to join us for this critical opportunity to put sector-wide issues on the political agenda for the next term of Parliament. It’s now, or not for a long time..

The findings come as the Community Council for Australia launches the ‘It Takes a Village: Education is everyone’s business’ campaign (www.ittakesavillage.org.au) – a community-led campaign aimed at mobilising Australians to take a greater role in the education and future success of our young people.
