Justice, Opportunity and Shared Wealth for all South Australians

You are here

Welcome

SACOSS is the South Australian Council of Social Service, the peak body for the non-government health and community services sector in South Australia.

We envision a future of justice, opportunity and shared wealth for all South Australians. To actualise this vision, we speak out on issues that affect our community, our State, our Nation and our world. We lead and support our community to take action. We hold governments, business and communities to account when their actions disadvantage vulnerable people.

We believe that developing a fair and just community is possible. We believe that a thriving community sector will help to address poverty and disadvantage. And we will continue to speak with, alongside and for all South Australians - no matter who you are, where you live or what your current circumstances are.
