Consulting with members, collecting evidence and analysing trends to develop smart policy proposals for change.
VCOSS is the peak representative body for Victoria’s social and community sector, and the state’s leading social advocacy organisation.
We work towards creating a Victoria that is a fair, just and inclusive.
Where nobody is trapped by poverty, and everybody is supported to live a life of wellbeing.
Here are just some of the ways.
"The pandemic has made bold interventions a necessity, and the government isn't missing its shot."
Everybody needs a home that stays cool in summer and warm in winter.
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.
