Souths Cares Nominated for SIMNA Award
Souths Cares have today been nominated as one of nine finalists in the Social Impact Measurement Network of Australia (SIMNA) Awards 2016 for the organisation’s successful Oral Health Program.
Souths Cares partners with the NSW Centre for Aboriginal Oral Health Strategy, Colgate and the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health to deliver Oral Health Sessions across Sydney and regional NSW.
Souths Cares is an independent not-for-profit public benevolent institution, established to support the community and address social need across NSW. Its charter is to support disadvantaged and marginalised youth and their families through the delivery of capacity building programs addressing education, training, health and employment needs.
“We received applications from the SIMNA Awards from different sectors, but the finalists are largely from not-for-profit organisations,” said Simon Faivel, Chair of SIMNA
“This demonstrates the commitment of the sector to improving the wellbeing of people and communities in Australia and abroad, and sharing their success and failures from their impact measurement and reports.
“We encourage all sectors who want to improve their impact measurement practices to learn from the SIMNA Awards finalists.”
SIMNA is Australia’s leading industry and practitioner network for social impact measurement. For more information visit www.simna.com.au or Twitter @SIMNA_AU.
