The Victorian community sector is strongest when working together.

As the state peak, VCOSS convenes and supports a number of collaborations, and represents member organisations on several sector and government panels, steering groups and advisory bodies.

We also proudly work with governments, universities, NGOs, businesses, unions, service providers and other peak bodies to achieve the greatest impact, while maintaining our independence.
