1. Chairman’s Report to the Minister

Hon Jay Weatherill MP

Minister for Families and Communities

GPO Box 2269

ADELAIDE SA 5001

Dear Minister

I am pleased to present the Annual Report of the Board of the Charitable and Social Welfare

Fund (Community Benefit SA) for 2003/04.

In the last financial year a record 965 applications were received from non government community service agencies requesting $14.7 million over two funding rounds conducted in

August 2003 and February 2004. This far exceeded the previous annual average of 805 applications requesting $11.6 million since Community Benefit SA was established in

1996/97.

Thankfully, due to an amendment to the Gaming Machines Act which increased the annual allocation to Community Benefit SA by $1 million per annum in January 2003, the Board was able to fund a record 424 one-off projects for $4.3 million in 2003/04. The Board is highly appreciative to your Government for the significant increase and now will be able to fund over

100 additional projects per annum. The Board also appreciates the decision to allocate annual indexation to the Fund which will ensure the monetary value is maintained in the future.

The Board has strong indicators that Community Benefit SA has had a remarkable positive impact on building the infrastructure and service capacity of non government community service agencies and improving the lives of tens of thousands of disadvantaged people across the State over the last 8 years. A total of 2,480 one-off projects have been funded for

$22.4 million to approximately 800 agencies – $10.7 million has funded 1,330 projects for equipment and upgrade of facilities, $3.6 million for 250 projects for fundraising and development of volunteers, and $8.1 million for 900 projects for the provision of direct services and programs and community development initiatives.

Particular emphasis has been given to funding projects for special needs groups – Aboriginal people, multicultural groups (especially refugees) and people with disabilities. Specific strategies have worked effectively to attract applications from these sectors, resulting in the approval of 210 projects for $2.4 million in 2003/04.

Agencies are required to provide a Financial Certificate and a Project Evaluation Report to acquit each funded project. To date 1,380 projects have been evaluated and 90% were rated as successful in meeting or exceeding the contracted project objectives. Agencies make a major contribution and add value and resources to projects - in 45% of cases projects have exceeded contracted objectives, a remarkable achievement. The success of projects over

Community Benefit SA Annual Report 2003/04 1

the years has been confirmed by agency visits conducted by Board members and staff of

Community Benefit SA. In 2003/04, 45 agencies were visited in metropolitan and rural areas.

During the last two years the Board is proud to have granted seed funding to assist in the development of some major projects which will provide invaluable resources to the community services sector in the long term. These include the establishment of CanDoNet by

Townsend House (a web site portal which can be utilised by other agencies to establish and operate their own websites at low cost) and the establishment of CommunIT by Community

Information Strategies Australia CISA (a program which provides advice on purchasing and supporting information technology).

The extraordinary popularity of funding application workshops continued with 625 participants attending 17 workshops. Workshop evaluations indicate that participants rate the training highly in terms of attaining a practical understanding the guidelines and greater ability to effectively complete an application form. Advice is also provided on accessing other funding programs.

A highlight of the year was the one-day “Creating Opportunities” conference conducted by

Community Benefit SA for 240 people from non government agencies on 18 July 2003. The purpose of the conference was to provide a medium for agencies to present and share stories of the many successful projects and innovative opportunities that have been created with the assistance of Community Benefit SA. Projects aimed at enhancing people’s lives and building stronger agencies, communities and supportive networks were celebrated.

Empowering clients, organisations and communities was a key theme and 90% of participants rated the conference as successful in obtaining relevant information, skills, resources and ideas and improving professional networks.

Your predecessor, the Hon Stephanie Key MP. Minister for Social Justice, opened the

Creating Opportunities conference and launched the new Community Benefit SA website.

The website has proven to be a very valuable asset to the Fund increasing administrative efficiency and improving accessibility to information. It has been well utilised.

As you are already aware, as of July 2004 I am retiring as Chairperson of the Board after a 6 year period. I have very much enjoyed being involved and have come to appreciate the exceptional contribution that non government agencies make in supporting disadvantaged people in the community. I have also appreciated the dedication and skilful work of the Board members and Departmental staff in making Community Benefit SA a successful and well respected funding program. I also thank you and previous Ministers for the ongoing support provided to the program.

Yours sincerely

STEPHEN MANN

CHAIRMAN

EXCERPT FROM THE GAMING MACHINES (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENTS ACT, 1996

Amendments as of 5 June 2003

Community Benefit SA is the public name given to the Charitable and Social Welfare Fund, established under Section 73B of the Gaming Machines (Miscellaneous) Amendments Act

1996. The Fund is a program of the Government of South Australia and distributes $4 million each year from gaming machine taxes. The Fund provides financial assistance for charitable or social welfare organisations in accordance with the directions of a Board appointed by the

Minister for Families and Communities. The Board is responsible for making the funding decisions and the Minister is responsible for determining the guidelines.

Two other separately independent funds have been established under the Act:

~ The Sport and Recreation Fund ($3.5 million) which distributes grants to community sport and recreation organisations, and

~ The Community Development Fund ($20 million) which allocates money to Government health, welfare and education bodies

Normal Grants (up to $35,000)

The overall purpose of Community Benefit SA is to provide one-off project funding to assist incorporated, non government non-profit charitable and social welfare organisations to improve the well-being, quality of life, community participation and life management skills of disadvantaged individuals and communities, and to develop and strengthen communities across the metropolitan, rural and remote regions of South Australia.

3 Community Benefit SA Annual Report 2003/04

This is achieved by funding one-off projects which:

~ Enhance the functioning, administrative efficiency, infrastructure, volunteer base and ongoing revenue raising capacity of organisations

~ Establish, provide, enhance, develop or expand services, programs, activities, facilities, resources and equipment provided for disadvantaged individuals and communities.

A major focus of the Fund is to complement community programs, which are the core responsibility of other major organisations, Government Departments and funding bodies.

Two types of projects are funded under the guidelines:

~ Community Service Projects which assist families and people in need who are suffering poverty or hardship, risk breakdown, and are the most disadvantaged in the community

~ Fundraising Projects which enable organisations to increase their annual revenue by developing new long term fundraising strategies that may replace previous gambling related methods.

Grants are limited to $35,000 with most of the funds given in smaller amounts of less than

$10,000.

Special Grants and Strategic Special Grants (up to $75,000)

Special Grants ranging up to $75,000 were introduced in 1997/98 to assist large charitable organisations to address the impact of the introduction of gaming machines. In 2000/2001

Special Grants were replaced by Strategic Special Grants as a once only initiative to provide up to 3 years of one-off funding to 2002/03. The process for allocating all Strategic Special

Grants involved conducting an application process in July/August 2000 and resulted in 12 agencies being approved for funding.

Strategic Special Grants were allocated a total of $2.1 million for the 3-year period 2000/01 to

2002/03. Some of the Strategic Special Grants projects have been delayed and implementation has extended into 2004 while still utilising the initial funding allocation. Annual reviews indicate that the Strategic Special Grant projects are progressing satisfactorily.

Under the guidelines, Special Grants and Strategic Special Grants received $600,000 per annum drawn from the $3 million allocated annually to Community Benefit SA from 1997/98 to 2002/03.

Funding is no longer available to the Special Grants and Strategic Special Grants programs as from 2003/04.

6. Creating Opportunities Conference

On 18 July 2003 Community Benefit SA held a one-day conference entitled “Creating

Opportunities”. The conference was attended by 240 people from non government community service agencies from across the State and was opened by the former Minister for

Social Justice, Hon Stephanie Key MP.

Minister Key announced that the Government had increased the Community Benefit SA Fund from $3 million to $4 million per annum and increased the maximum one-off project grant limit from $30,000 to $35,000. The Minister also launched the new website,

www.dfc.sa.gov.au/cbsa

, which was established to enhance access to information on the

Fund.

The conference was structured to enable the presentation and sharing of information, skills and ideas on the diversity of opportunities generated by non government agencies with the assistance of Community Benefit SA funded projects for the benefit of disadvantaged people since 1996.

Major presentations covered the following topics :

“Ambulances and Fences” (Pam Simmons, Executive Director, SACOSS). Emphasised the importance of focussing on some initiatives which prevent social problems rather than being trapped into predominately providing crisis services to address immediate needs on an ongoing basis.

“Breadth and Depth of Community Benefit SA” (John Smith, Executive Officer, Community

Benefit SA). By funding 2,060 one-off projects for $18 million, Community Benefit SA has assisted over 750 non government agencies to increase the range, flexibility and number of opportunities which aimed to help tens of thousands of disadvantaged people. Projects have assisted people to maximise their quality of life, health, well-being, social and task functioning, and positive participation in society and employment. People leading fulfilled and enjoyable lives in a socially inclusive and compassionate society could be seen as the ultimate objective.

“Social Inclusion”. (Madeleine Woolley, Executive Director, Social Inclusion Unit). The

Premier has established the Social Inclusion Unit to address social justice issues across

South Australia. Initial priorities for attention are school retention, homelessness and drugs.

“Youth Opportunities”. (Karen Marshman, Manager, Youth Opportunities, and young participants). A ten week (ten day) program on goal setting, positive thinking, motivation, confidence building and communication is facilitating the self development of Year 10 and

Year 11 students at risk of leaving school early in the northern suburbs. The program has been a key contributing factor in improving the school retention rate at Salisbury High

School from 58% to 90%.

10 Community Benefit SA Annual Report 2003/04

Neporendi dance group. Provided a dance performance by indigenous children demonstrating how community arts projects can facilitate social and skill development.

“Services for Refugees”. (Tony Pearson – Aboriginal Catholic Ministry; Kevin Liston –

Australian Refugee Association; Colleen Fitzpatrick - Lutheran Community Care). The provision of immediate services to refugees is critical in addressing past issues of detention, trauma and torture, and to assist resettlement into a new country. Positive alternative policies and strategies to constructively support refugees views were presented.

Small group workshops were conducted on Empowering Individuals and Families and on

Empowering Communities and Community Organisations as follows :

EMPOWERING INDIVIDUALS AND

FAMILIES

1. Beyond the Shed (projects for males)

1. Reinventing Your Agency

2. Women’s Business 2. Sustainable Programs

3. Supporting Families and Children 3. Building Community Houses and

Neighbourhood Networks

4. Achieving Mental Health

EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES AND

COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS

5. Disability – Bridging the Gap

6. Valuing Indigenous Culture

4. Building Rural Programs and

Communities

5. Innovative Projects

6. Socially Inclusive Programs

Most participants rated the conference as successful in improving networks with other agencies and obtaining relevant information, ideas and resources in relation to effective projects and approaches. 90% of participants indicated that they would attend another conference.

“Creating Opportunities” was the second conference conducted by Community Benefit SA.

The first conference, titled “Sharing Success”, was held in 2001 to celebrate the first five years of operation of the program with the sharing of many successful projects. 220 people attended.

Depending on available resources, a ten year conference may be held in 2006.

Community Benefit SA Annual Report 2003/04 11

7. Website

www.dfc.sa.gov.au/cbsa

The Creating Opportunities conference in July 2003 saw the launch of the Community Benefit

SA website by the former Minister for Social Justice, Hon Stephanie Key MP. The website was developed to provide equitable access to core information for potential applicant agencies from around the State.

A high administrative workload involved in responding to a record numbers of telephone calls and requests for information to be mailed out formed part of the rationale for this project. A large quantity of electronic traffic through the server due to emailing application forms and guidelines to clients was a concern prior to the website’s establishment. The significant cost of printing material and postage costs experienced each round provided an excellent opportunity to save valuable human and financial resources.

Establishment of the website has assisted CBSA to provide information efficiently and promptly therefore improving service provision to clients, cost savings to the department, and decreased administrative workload. The website has also allowed staff more time to respond to more detailed and complex requests and focus on important developmental projects.

Access to information can now be made more equitable, particularly for rural and remote applicants. When a round opens the application forms are posted to the website and are available instantly, therefore eliminating the potential for applicants from rural and remote regions to be further disadvantaged by waiting days for their mail to arrive.

There are a few key features of the Community Benefit SA website. These include the application forms which can be downloaded, information about our application workshops, past lists of funded projects, publication of our Annual Report and links to partner organisations such as the South Australian Council of Social Service (SACOSS), Multicultural

Communities Council and the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation as well as other grants websites.

It is anticipated that, at some stage, the website could provide an opportunity for clients to lodge their applications on-line. The current design, however, meets the clients’ needs and is able to be maintained and updated within internal resource limits. Presently the website is updated at least twice per year.

The statistics collected by WebTrends have shown over the course of the year that applicants have taken some time to become accustomed to using the website as a first point of contact.

This was evident in February 2004, eight months after the site was launched, when CBSA received a record number of visits for Round 17, almost 140 individual visits on the day after the round opened. This was a pleasing statistic and confirmed that the sector was comfortable using the website and was able to access the information they needed.

It is envisaged that an informal review of the website will be undertaken in 2005 to measure the validity and ease of utilisation for users. It is anticipated that the website will continue to provide a worthwhile service for all CBSA clients in the coming years.

8. Funding Rounds

In 1996/97, the initial year of operation of the Fund, 3 funding rounds were conducted. From 1997/98, the Board decided to reduce the number of funding rounds to two per year to minimise administration costs and to ensure effective management of the Fund.

Each round takes approximately 26 weeks to complete, from the time of advertising the opening of the funding round to the time of notifying applicants of funding outcomes. A further period of 2 to 6 weeks is required to establish agreements and make payments to funded agencies as well as provide feedback to unsuccessful applicants. The payment period may extend to 3 months if agencies are required to acquit previously funded projects or there is a delay by the agencies in accepting the offer of funding.

At the completion of each funded project agencies are required to complete a Project Evaluation report and a Financial Certificate to acquit the funds.

10. Fundraising Projects

Fundraising Projects

Fundraising projects aim to assist agencies develop new long term fundraising strategies or improve existing programs that will result in an increase in ongoing revenue and enhance the services provided to disadvantaged people. Fundraising projects provide a one-off opportunity for agencies to reorganise and redevelop their fundraising programs.

In the initial rounds of Community Benefit SA, relatively few applications were received for fundraising projects. The number of fundraising projects approved increased in Round 5 and was maintained until Round 10. From Rounds 11 to 15 the number of projects and the amount of money allocated to fundraising projects has steadily declined.

11. Evaluation, Monitoring & Accountability

To ensure funds are expended in accordance with the Gaming Machines (Miscellaneous)

Amendments Act (1996) and the Funding Guidelines, the Board has implemented a number of evaluation, monitoring and accountability procedures which are in the form of agency written reports and agency visits. The Board has aimed to place reasonable accountability requirements on agencies, and not unrealistic demands, by requesting concise and brief reports which contain the essential information. Feedback from funded agencies has indicated that this goal has been achieved.

Agency Reports

At the completion of each funded project, agencies are required to provide to the Fund the following information:

~ a Financial Certificate : acts as a statutory declaration that the funds were spent in accordance with the approved project; in the case of fundraising projects, details of additional net revenue generated is also sought

~ a Project Evaluation Report : briefly describes the project activities, people assisted, target group outcomes, numbers of people assisted, other achievements.

A mechanism to monitor the receipt of reports is incorporated into the Community Benefit SA Paradox computer data base system. Staff from Community Benefit SA follow up agencies to increase the level of accountability. From Round 15 the Board set a policy that agencies which were approved for a new project would not receive payment until all previous projects were acquitted.

Agency Visits

Board members and staff of the Fund make agency visits for the purposes of evaluating project activities and outcomes for people in need. It also provides the Fund with a practical insight into the needs of disadvantaged people in the community and the range of approaches and program models undertaken by agencies to meet those needs. In 2003/04 a total of 45 agencies were visited.

Agency visits have affirmed that most projects have achieved a significant level of benefit for disadvantaged people, have improved facilities as an ongoing resource for the community, have enhanced current services/programs, or established new self-sustaining services/ programs.

Funded agencies have consistently demonstrated a capacity to utilise relatively small amounts of money for maximum benefit and have attracted additional resources in the process.

To date formal assessments have been conducted of 1,378 one-off projects based on the evaluation reports provided by agencies.

Of the 1,378 projects evaluated, 1,244 projects (or 90%) were rated as successful with a medium, high or very high outcome.

616 projects (or 45%) exceeded the contracted outcome and were rated in the high to very high categories.

131 projects (or 10.0%) were rated at a lower outcome than expected or were projects that were not completed.

5. Very High:

Contracted project objectives exceeded in terms of numbers assisted and excellent quality outcomes for people in need. Value added outcomes such as, donations from local business, one-off project becomes ongoing, the project work is undertaken by volunteers, large increase in client base and the agency provides more services/programs than was originally intended.

4. High:

Contracted project objectives met but with additional outcomes including, higher numbers than anticipated, unexpected outcomes for the agency and target group that benefit both the target group and/or the agency. For example members of the target group may have found employment, undertaken training or transformed their lives in some way.

3. Medium: Contracted project objectives met.

2. Low: Contracted project objectives partially met (50% -75% approximately). Lower number of participants than planned.

1. Very Low:

Minor achievement of objectives (less than 50%). The needs of disadvantaged people met to a limited degree, lower number of participants than planned.

12. Responses from Funded Agencies

Listed below are examples of responses from organisations that have received funding from

Community Benefit SA. Many of the responses reflect a high level of outcome for disadvantaged people in the South Australian community.

“The Community Benefit SA grant has enabled us to improve our service to the community and meet many of the needs of disadvantaged people. Without this assistance the committee would need to fundraise heavily in the current economic climate and would take considerably longer to achieve the same

result.

(Community Neighbourhood Centre, $5,590)

“This grant has helped us to establish 2 Yoga groups. To keep the Evening Art class afloat and feed in new members

– attracting Youth. We have skilled up our group leaders and volunteers in first aid and assisted local isolated Seniors to be active and happy in the community. Thank you very much for your support.”

(Community centre, $5,000)

“I cannot thank you enough for enabling this project to take place.

Community Benefit SA has been of such value to our program and enabled us to achieve a quality of life for our participants they could only dream of. You may think these are small projects but the long term benefits and difference to these elder’s lives the grant has made are not measurable.”

(Rural Indigenous group, $4,160)

“The spin-offs from the camps have been fantastic. Networks have been set up and continue, some of the women are taking on leadership positions in their communities, including setting up a Spanish speaking radio program…, and sitting on some community boards and committees. The stated outcomes of the camps were met. Women increased their social networks and social supports, increased their self esteem and gained information in a safe supportive culturally and linguistically appropriate environment, increased their capacity to become more assertive and take greater responsibility for themselves and were able to take time out and relax.”

(Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Organisation, $6,500)

20 Community Benefit SA Annual Report 2003/04

“The numbers of clients … have increased significantly since the implementation of foot spas …Clients tell their friends the benefits of the spa and new client contacts are made …The relaxing effect and the opportunity to sit and enjoy … made it easier to discuss wider health issues…Ongoing costs are minimal and the ACCHS will provide these funds…. Many thanks to Community Benefit SA for your support.”

(Homelessness service, $700)

Quote from Participant – “It has helped me deal with problems with my family and I am now going to counselling which I would not have done if not for the course.”

(Rural community organisation, $5,820)

“Community Benefit SA has granted $2,290 funding to replace worn carpets and vinyl and for the purchase on interior paint for ….Community House. Existing carpets and vinyl had been in the house since 1982 and the interior had not been painted for 8 years. …The project has completely changed the atmosphere of the building, leading to very positive comments from clients. …The renovations have prompted some people to paint their own houses. They ask advice and one of the positive outcomes of the project is motivating people to enhance their maintenance skills and take more pride and responsibility in the appearance of their own properties. ….Eleven volunteers of the house have worked together after business hours, using their own equipment mostly, for a total of 159 volunteer hours. …It has been a great project, working together to improve our venue.

The volunteers are now planning a ‘garage sale’ to buy new curtains for the building”.

(A metropolitan community house, $2,290)

“The life of our college has been significantly enhanced through the grant of

“$4,250 from Funding Round 14. All our clients, tutors, volunteer leaders and I would like to express our thanks for having our application granted.”

(Community Organisation, $4,250)

“The payoff for staff members involved in this program has been the knowledge that positive changes have occurred and that a longstanding relationship with all participants has been established”. (Drug treatment program, $4,930)

‘We now have an excellent core of volunteers …They now provide a network for those with MND that was not possible prior to this grant. …This would not have been achieved in the time period without the financial assistance and support from

Community Benefit SA.”

(Support service, $14,900)

“The transformative effects of this program will last for a long time.

Thank you for your confidence in funding this project!”

(Church based organisation, $29,710)

Community Benefit SA Annual Report 2003/04 21

“The fact that 3 requests for the program have been made …. shows the value of the program and the expertise of the trained facilitators. The financial assistance of Community

Benefit SA has been paramount in the success of this venture.”

(Church based organisation, $2,500)

“The project was so successful and the feedback from participants and parents so overwhelming that the Association has committed itself to holding a similar camp in January. …request that Project CHAOS be extended to include the

January camp and unexpended funds to date be allocated to partially fund this new camp… the Association … would undertake to fund the remainder of the project through its own initiatives.”

(Muscular Dystrophy Assoc, $35,940)

“A BIG THANKS to all CBSA staff for your patience with my questions, for the extensions of time we have been granted and for this wonderful funding for our Storage Shed Project. May God bless you richly for your goodness.”

(Church based organisation, $5,570)

“We would like to thank you very much for the support you have given us. It has been absolutely wonderful working in our new heated building. Summer will no longer be a problem to us. The silk articles can be made even if it is a hot day. We often take these comforts for granted. Having heating and cooling in our premises is great.”

(Aboriginal Community Centre $4,500)

Equipment purchased "has been instrumental in establishing a vital support service for the Cambodian community..."

(Culturally Specific Service, $6,170)

“Thank you for supporting our project that produced positive results for our clients.” Feedback from clients indicated that project outcomes enhance their personal growth and coping skills, “thank you to everyone involved, you have

given us skills to live by”; “it has helped me deal with problems, with my family

and I am now going on to counselling which I would not have done if not for the

course”; Other participants stated that “the program was positive overall and I

enjoyed the group” and “an excellent course in helping people get right on track

and accept themselves.

(Community organisation, $5,000)

Appendices

Appendix 1 - Financial Statement

Statement by the Board of Charitable and Social Welfare Fund.

The Fund was established under section 73B of the Gaming Machines (Miscellaneous)

Amendments Act (1996) and was developed in response to the impact of the introduction of gaming machines in hotels and social clubs in South Australia. The Fund was established to enhance the level of community support through the metropolitan, regional and rural areas of South Australia by providing financial assistance to community organisations addressing social welfare needs, including those organisations experiencing increased service demands relating to gaming machine use, with special emphasis on:

~ The most vulnerable families and individuals who are suffering poverty or hardship and risk breakdown,

~ New ways of increasing financial support for organisations which are in the transition from reliance upon gambling related fundraising methods.

During the year ended 30 June 2004, funding totalling $4,000,000 was received and grants totalling $3,289,930 were made to organisations meeting approved criteria.

Additional grants of $2,358,200 were approved but unpaid as at 30 June 2004. In addition the closing commitment to Strategic Special Grants was $25,000 as at 30 June 2004.

Appendix 2b - Size of Funded Projects

The following tables and charts indicate the number of projects, the percentage of projects and money allocated according to the size of the projects – small (less than $5,000), medium (between $5,000 and

$14,999) and large ($15,000 and over).

The Board has set a priority to fund projects of less than $10,000 to achieve the objective of equitably distributing limited funds across target groups, geographic regions and organisations as much as possible. In 2003/2004 this objective was achieved – 76.7% of the projects funded were allocated to projects under $10,000. This amounted to 325 of 424 projects funded in 03/04.
