A NSW Free from Poverty and Disadvantage
The NSW Council of Social Service (NCOSS) works with and for people experiencing poverty and disadvantage, and those organisations that support them, to achieve positive change in NSW.
We believe that all people, communities and the community services sector should be supported and empowered to prosper in our state.
Making Positive Change in Our Communities
Over 888,000 people are living below the poverty line in NSW and this number is growing. As communities struggle to meet the cost of living, many people are being left behind and are doing it tough. Natural disasters as well as the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated the already growing number of vulnerable communities. As the peak body for the social and community services sector in NSW, NCOSS is uniquely placed to work together with government, business and other stakeholders to ensure communities in NSW are thriving for everyone.
