WSCF are pleased to share the Report of Findings for the Roundtable Series which was held in each FACS district in Greater Western Sydney
The report is the outcome of an extensive analysis process. It consolidates the information gathered at the Roundtable and the survey results. The Report can be used as a basis for your submission to the FACS reform consultation process and for other purposes. A reminder that submissions are due on the 16 October and you can access further information on the FACS website.
The Roundtable series engaged with over 270 participants from across the three FACS districts in Greater Western Sydney, and generated a large amount of discussion. Information was gathered by facilitators and scribes at each table around key questions, and participants were encouraged to fill out a survey at each event which provided broader demographic and thematic information. To assist with the identification of key priorities and recommendations WSCF contracted an expert research consultant.
