“Australia’s ‘Third Sector’ of community and not-for-profit organisations plays a central role in our nation and in communities across every part of our vast land. In delivering on the Australian Government’s commitment to build a stronger and fairer Australia, since coming to office in December 2007 we have sought to embrace new ways of governing – including forming innovative partnerships with the Third Sector to tackle the nation’s long-term challenges.

For too long, policy debates about how we address many of our greatest social challenges have centred around a false choice between government action or relying on private charities. Our most difficult challenges of disadvantage and social exclusion cannot be solved either by governments or charities alone. Nor can they be solved by the business community alone. Instead, we need to work together – bringing the resources and coordinating capacity of government together with the social capital of community organisations and the entrepreneurial spirit of business.”
