VCOSS welcomes the funding certainty provided to community sector organisations in the 2015-16 Victorian State Budget. The state government has allocated $935 million towards covering community sector wage increases mandated under the Equal Remuneration Order (ERO). This will assist community organisations to meet the costs of increased wages and attract and retain skilled, professional staff.
VCOSS has called on all political parties to establish a fair funding model for community service organisations including funding for wage increases mandated by the Social, Community and Disability Services Industry Equal Remuneration Order 2012 and indexation of funding that meets the real increase in costs of providing services.
