Over the next 10 years, starting from April 2022, the CCT will support the sector's needs by focusing on 6 capability-building areas, while promoting the use of an organisational health diagnostic to help SSAs prioritise areas of capability building and guide them on what to seek funding for.
The 6 capability-building areas are aligned with the key opportunity areas and challenges identified by SSAs through the Social Service Sector Survey 2021.
To build capabilities in the 6 areas, there will be curated schemes designed to provide support and meet the differing needs of SSAs in these areas. There will also be a CCT Open Grant scheme which will provide funds to support SSAs' ground-up capability and capacity building projects. Schemes will be rolled out progressively in phases, starting with the schemes below.
In addition, NCSS will implement sector-development initiatives to complement SSA-targeted schemes in the 6 focal areas such as creation of new diagnostic tools, guides or frameworks, peer learning and community building, and development of training programmes.
