Social Outcomes is collaborating with the NSW Council on Social Services (NCOSS) to provide NCOSS members with a Social Finance Innovation 101 Workshop for Senior Managers. The workshop will be split into two half-day sessions from 9am – 12:30pm on Thursday 12 March and Thursday 19 March, in Sydney. Background to the Workshop is provided below:
The social sector is undergoing a period of rapid change and increased pressure. Traditional sources of funding are becoming increasingly constrained, yet the social needs in our community show no sign of abating. But new models for funding and implementing social outcomes are emerging that the sector can capitalise on.
If you have heard terms like ‘social impact bonds’ and ‘impact investing’ but you’re not really sure what they mean or you have started thinking about how to bring in new sources of revenue for your organisation, this course is for you. It will:
- guide you through the terminology
- help you explore the different options for conceptualising and financing social outcomes, and
- provide an opportunity for you to practice the concepts with case scenarios, including your own project ideas.
Lead by Vanessa Lesnie from Social Outcomes, it will be a practical and interactive workshop targeting senior executives of NCOSS member organisations who are exploring new ways of doing business.
