Driven by Purpose: Charities that make the difference

by Stephen Judd, Anne Robinson and Felicity Errington

Driven by Purpose

This book analyses the social context of Australian charities and offers practical advice on rediscovering purpose that drives and shapes.


Driven by Purpose: Charities that make the difference explores the crisis of identity at the heart of Australian charities. 

Stephen Judd, Anne Robinson and Felicity Errington delve into the 'who' and the 'why' central to the purpose of a charity, as well as other key issues, such as governance, reform and charity laws. This book analyses the historical and social context of Australian charities and considers the relationship between charities and Australian society.

Organisation leaders, managers and those interested in the way charities can impact their communities will find Driven by Purpose a refreshing and practical approach to this important topic.


"This is an especially timely book. It is also useful and therefore important because Judd and Robinson have identified a crisis facing Australian charities as one of identity; charities know not who they are or why they do what they do. Everyone involved in the sector should read it.
