This video was recorded on 7 March 2013.Church-related not-for-profit organisations deliver approximately half of social services in Australia through contracting arrangements with governments. Significant economic and religious issues have arisen, especially incentives for erosion of quality, transfer of risk, staffing shortages, gender imbalances, lack of innovation, and erosion of the sustaining identity and mission ofthe organisations.This project is innovative in bringing together a team of economists, sociologists and religion scholars to work on the issues, utilising rich new qualitative and quantitative survey data. Outcomes will improve service delivery arrangements and provide policy roadmaps for the social service organisations, churches and government.Paul Oslington is Professor of Economics and Dean of Business at Alphacrucis College in Sydney.
