Help shape the future of the Not-for-Profit sector


The Not-for-Profit (NFP) Sector Development Blueprint (the NFP Blueprint) issues paper is now available on the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS) Engage website for feedback.

The NFP Blueprint issues paper will start a conversation to inform the development of a sector-led Blueprint, a roadmap, advising the government what is needed for a sustainable NFP and charities sector. This is the sector’s opportunity to tell the government what they need to create a better future for:

  • the Australian NFP and charities sector
  • those who benefit and rely on it.

Development of a NFP Blueprint was announced by the Australian Government in the 2022-23 October Budget. The Blueprint Expert Reference Group (BERG), a group of sector representatives, was established to deliver the sector-led Blueprint.

Your input, ideas and views will help create a more vibrant and thriving NFP and charities sector. The BERG wants your suggestions for sector-led workable and effective reform options. This opportunity will allow you to identify:

  • changes that are needed immediately
  • changes that can be implemented over a longer period.

To share your views and help support long-term change for the NFP and charities sector, visit the DSS Engage website.

Submissions close on 20 December 2023.
