Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper is based on a study of partnerships and collaborations between community, government and private sectors in the Central West Region of New South Wales, Australia. The study included the participants from all three sectors and found a multitude of relationships between private, public and community-based organisations. A diverse range if views about their impact on staff, managers, clients and the community as a whole was evident.In this paper, the authors focus on participating community-based organisations and their views on partnerships and collaborations. The empirical data of the study are used to explore further the concept of paucity management as a set of strategies that community organisations practise in response to a decline in resources. The authors argue that partnerships and collaborations contribute both positive and negative elements to the economic and social working environments of the non-profit human services sector. Within the parameters of this paper, public sector and private sector contributions to the study are reported.
