ACOSS National Network
ACOSS and our members share a vision of working for a fair, inclusive and sustainable Australia
As the peak welfare organisation for the community sector, ACOSS engages with our membership to develop policy and advocacy strategies that improve the lives of disadvantaged and socially excluded Australians.
ACOSS and our members share a vision of working for a fair, inclusive and sustainable Australia.
Our members support ACOSS to develop sound policy and undertake effective advocacy on the needs of people affected by poverty, disadvantage and inequality, and to build a strong and sustainable community sector.
