Policy and Advocacy
VCOSS raises awareness of the existence, causes and effects of poverty and inequality in Victoria. We select policy areas where we can have the most impact and and where there’s not already a strong voice in the community sector.
This includes researching and developing ideas for government and the community sector; responding to current and proposed government policies and practices; advocating for change using the media and direct lobbying, and; coordinating shared community sector responses to emerging issues.
