VCOSS Media Hub

We won't muck you about.

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

We are represented in the media by our CEO, Emma King.

Case studies

People experiencing poverty and disadvantage are extremely vulnerable.

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

As a peak body which doesn’t deliver frontline services, VCOSS is also often poorly placed to find you a case study.

But we’ll try!

And if we can’t find you somebody, we will happily put you in touch with a frontline service organisation that can.

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 Googe 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 respond to inquiries from student publications.

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