The spur: Standard

A periodical of what we're up to, our thoughts on social change, and everything else.

Hi folks!

Welcome to the June edition of The spur: Standard, as we herald in some brisk weather, a new federal government and closer to home, our new Partnerships expert, Feda Adra. Feda brings decades of experience in the not-for-profit sector, and is working to grow our funding and project partners across Australia.

Since we last spoke, Sticks & Stones has been busy gathering data, testing our hypothesis' and engaging The Social Story Co for our socials, and Tanck for government engagement. As we look to launch our Australia-wide story gathering for Sticks & Stones, we'd love to hear from you. Sign up to our holding page for updates.

Internally, we've been focusing on and are now proud to launch the spur: impact model. The spur: impact model is our ongoing dedication to creating, measuring and communicating our impact to the world.

You can also check out some of our recent work developing a theory of change model for Queensland's peak body for the homelessness sector.

Ciao for now.
