Social Service Agencies

Social Service Agencies

A Social Service Agency (SSA) is a non-profit organisation that provides welfare services and/or services that benefit the community at large. SSAs are typically set up as societies, companies limited by guarantee or trusts. As long as the organisation is set up exclusively for charitable purposes and carries out activities to achieve these purposes, it must register itself as a charity.
