Community: The Heart of the Economy

The ACOSS National Conference is the premier community sector event bringing together key decision makers, practitioners, researchers and the people at the front line of social policy and services.

In 2013, with both the Federal Budget and election to follow, you can expect the latest ideas and directions on policy and practice affecting people experiencing poverty and inequality and those who work with them.

Topics for discussion will include community empowerment in service delivery, the persistence of poverty in Australia, budget sustainability, the future of employment services, income management and the important social policy issues for the 2013 federal election.

Come and join the discussion and have your voice heard in the festival city of Adelaide on the 25th and 26th March 2013.
