Continuity of Funding Survey - At a Glance

In late November 2014 Mental Health Australia conducted a survey of non-government organisations in the mental health sector about the impact of uncertainties over funding from the Australian Government. A summary of the survey findings is provided below.

87 organisations nationally filled in the survey; the findings below are based on the 75 organisations who are in receipt of Commonwealth funding. The great majority of these (85%) were service providers, with the remainder being training, community development and advocacy organisations. 

The survey results demonstrate the very real impact that funding uncertainty is currently having on organisations and underscores the urgent need for government to clarify funding arrangements as soon as possible.
