The South Australian Council of Social Service (SACOSS) says that the child safety Bill introduced to the Parliament in a rush misses the mark and will do little to stem the tide of children and young people who are entering our child protection system.
SACOSS is the South Australian Council of Social Service, the peak body for the non-government health and community services sector in South Australia.
SACOSS does not accept poverty, inequity or injustice. We will be a powerful and representative voice that leads and supports our community to take actions that achieve our vision of justice, opportunity and shared wealth for all South Australians. We will hold to account governments, business, and communities for actions that disadvantage vulnerable people

SACOSS argues that the Commission’s Draft Report and recommendations underestimate the challenges faced by many Australian households in paying for telecommunications.
