Justice, Opportunity and Shared Wealth for all South Australians
You are here
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.
The not-for-profit (NFP) sector is set to receive fairer funding terms and easier-to-use templates when applying for grants and procurement of services.
By standardising contract templates, NFPs will benefit by saving time and money on what was an inconsistent and often onerous process.

SACOSS today expressed concern at reports that a proposed revaluation of SA Water’s asset base could lead to a multi-million hole in the state budget revenue.
The revaluation discussion has been triggered by a series of reports by Lew Owens. The latest of these, “A Cautious Conclusion”, was written by Mr Owens in his capacity as Independent Inquirer into water pricing as appointed by Treasurer Rob Lucas last year.
