A NSW free from poverty and inequality

Investing in Communities: What we heard at the 2017 NCOSS Regional Consultations

During July and August 2017, NCOSS toured the state to speak with over 500 community leaders and people working in community services, as well as those doing it tough. We listened to diverse, strong communities tell us about the key challenges they face, but also about the collaborative, innovative and inspiring ways that people are coming together to tackle these challenges.

These papers outline everything we heard and how these stories will feed into our broader policy and advocacy work going forward.

Please click on the images below to download the policy papers. We encourage you to read about these key issues and get in touch if you want to get involved in our work.
