Non government community services operators (NGCSOs) are the dominant service providers in the area of community-based social welfare in Australia. Services are funded by governments, NGCSOs and households.
In 2000–01, governments in Australia contributed $9.6 billion (70%) of the funding for welfare services provided for older people, families and children, people with disabilities and others in need.
The human resources involved in providing welfare services comprise volunteers, people employed in community services work and people who provide home-based informal support and welfare services.
Community and welfare workers come from a range of professions and backgrounds with varied qualifications and work in child and family services, accommodation for the aged, residential and non-residential care services.
