VCOSS is the peak representative body for Victoria’s social and community sector, and the state’s leading social advocacy organisation.
We are helping to create a Victoria that is a fair, just and fully inclusive.
A state where nobody is trapped by poverty, and every person is supported to live a life of wellbeing.
VCOSS CEO Emma King on why individual and community wellbeing should be the key goal in our post-COVID recovery.
Here are just some of the ways.
The Victorian Government has unveiled a budget that invests significantly in mental health.
VCOSS produces formal submissions to dozens of inquiries and policy development processes each year.
These are prepared in consultation with VCOSS members and the broader sector.
Stand alone policy reports on topics of significance are also produced.
You can view all our work in the VCOSS Policy Library.
