Today’s community sector organisations and educational institutions face unprecedented challenge in finding the balance between financial sustainability, and delivering the services their stakeholders want and need. Traditional models of service and curriculum design and delivery are on their last legs.

Community-based organisations still functioning in long-established patterns must change now. They must innovate to thrive. And in some cases, to survive.
