A key role of a peak body like SACOSS is advocacy on behalf of vulnerable and disadvantaged people. This sits alongside the charitable work of our sector so that our sector both directly supports vulnerable and disadvantaged people and seeks policy changes to ensure justice, opportunity and shared wealth for all South Australians.
The links on the left take you to more information about specific areas where we are currently advocating for policy change.
In addition, SACOSS also advocates for policies to support the work and development of our sector, and to make it easier to provide vital services.
SACOSS campaigns in a variety of ways including policy development, research and publication of reports on key issues of concern, organising meetings, events and making public statements, building community awareness and alliances, and advocacy direct to government officials, MPs, parliamentary committees and other decision makers.
