2019 AGM and Waged Poor Report Launch


SACOSS AGM and Board / Policy Council Elections 2019

Join us for the SACOSS Annual General Meeting 2019, where will will be launching our Annual Report for 2018-19 and our "Working to Make Ends Meet" report on Low-income Workers and Energy Bill Stress.

The "Working to Make Ends Meet" report is unique in that focuses on the energy affordability challenges of households whose main source of income is employment, but who are still living below the poverty line. It traces the issues and challenges arising from being part of the under-recognised cohort which we identify as “waged poor”.

When: Wednesday 20 November, 3.30pm - 5.00pm
Where: Marjorie Black House Community Room, SACOSS, 47 King William Rd, Unley

Drinks and nibbles will be provided following the meeting for members to make the most of this networking opportunity. Register your attendance here.
