National Centre for Excellence
The Australian Government has committed to support the vital work of charities and not-for-profit organisations.
In March 2014 the Department engaged the Centre for Social Impact (CSI) to provide advice on the best models for an independent Civil Society National Centre for Excellence (NCE). CSI researched best practice and undertook stakeholder consultation before providing a final report to the office of the former Minister for Social Services, the Hon Kevin Andrews MP, on 24 September 2014.
The Government has accepted the report and CSI will publish it on their website in due course.
