VCOSS Media Hub

We won't muck you about.

VCOSS works with journalists to tell the stories of people doing it tough, highlight the causes and effects of poverty, and present smart policies for a better and fairer Victoria.

We are represented in the media by VCOSS CEO Emma King.

Case studies

People experiencing poverty and disadvantage can be extremely vulnerable.

Sometimes, the last thing they might want to do is engage with the media.

As a peak body we don’t deliver frontline services. This means VCOSS is not always well placed to find you a case study.

But we’ll try! And if can’t find you somebody, we’ll recommend an organisation that might be able to help.

Arrange a SIMSAT

VCOSS is equipped to professionally record video and audio on your behalf, using a Canon 70D or Lumix GH4 and Rode microphones.

You ask the questions over the phone, we’ll capture the responses and send you the raw file via Google Drive.

We guarantee a clean and professional shot, without any logos or watermarks.


Student media

VCOSS loves supporting emerging journalists.

But sometimes we don’t have the time or resources to participate in stories for student publications.

Don’t take it personally. Please detail your enquiry using this form and we’ll come back to you.
