Collaboration, Simplification, Integration: Learnings from the Social Sector Transformation Fund (SSTF)
Panel Description

In November 2020, the NSW Government rolled out the $50 million Social Sector Transformation Fund (SSTF) program, primarily in response to COVID-19. It acknowledged  that the sector was hit hard by the pandemic, with surges in demand and increased costs.  The SSTF has provided a unique insight into our sector and how we are faring with a wide range of services and supports. In this session, a panel of SSTF support providers will share stories and case studies and some strategic lessons from their work with the sector.
