Description


Outcomes Plus: Knowing and showing the 'added value' of community to your stakeholders

Community Research webinars are live events which link up community sector professionals from multiple locations to share evidence of what’s working. Places are free of charge.


In this webinar:

Trevor McGlinchey, Executive Officer of the New Zealand Council of Christian Social Services and Garth Nowland-Foreman of the LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Leadership will share the 'Outcomes Plus' research, which evidences the value of community social services. They will discuss the impact of the current trend for social investment in New Zealand.

Trevor and Garth will ask 'how can we put our value into words so that government understands what they’re really getting when they contract services from the community and voluntary sector'? And, 'what are the consequences for individuals, communities, the government, and society as a whole if the ‘community value’ that they add to their work isn’t recognised by government policy and funding models'?


Participants will:

  • Learn about the Outcomes Plus report
  • Learn about the evidence of the added value provided by community social services
  • Develop a critique of current government procurement and investment
  • Have a better understanding of how investment might truly reflect the added value provided by community social services
  • Gain an understanding of the impact of civil society on NZ


Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is particularly (though not exclusively) for time-poor, cash-strapped managers, leaders, funders, researchers, fundraisers, and NGO professionals who are under pressure to produce evidence of their real value. or seeking to better understand the role of government in contracting and procurement and how best to navigate this new territory.

About the research

New Zealand Council of Christian Social Services published ‘Outcomes Plus’ (Neilson, Sedgwick & Grey) in 2015.

This research evidences what community social services contribute to society, and their added value, which precedes and goes well beyond what they are contracted to do by government. It identifies the characteristics of organisations that are proving effective in providing added value.

This webinar explores the impact that the work of the community sector has on New Zealand society, beyond the outcomes that are purchased by government funding.
