VicHealth CEO, Dr Sandro Demaio, on why we must build a common understanding of what a wellbeing economy can offer
VCOSS is the peak representative body for Victoria’s social and community sector, and the state’s leading social advocacy organisation.
We are working to create a Victoria free from poverty and disadvantage.
A state that is fair, just and fully inclusive.
Where nobody is trapped by poverty, and every person and every community enjoys true wellbeing.
VCOSS CEO Emma King on why individual and community wellbeing should be the key goal in our post-COVID recovery.
Consulting with members, collecting evidence and analysing trends to develop smart policy proposals for change.
Using our relationships, influence, community connections and public profile to campaign for a fair and just Victoria.
Working with members organisations and allies to ensure the community sector is strong, well-funded and resilient.
The latest from VCOSS members and staff.
I can’t help but feel a sharp sense of dread and loss when someone asks, “So, what do you do?”
VCOSS seeks to shape and inform public policy debates.
Each year, we prepare formal submissions to dozens of inquiries and policy development processes.
These are prepared in consultation with VCOSS members and the broader sector.
We also undertake original research and create stand alone policy statements on topics of significance.
