The Council of Social Service of New South Wales (NCOSS) is the peak body for the social and community services sector in New South Wales. NCOSS works with our membership on behalf of disadvantaged people and communities towards achieving social justice in NSW.
NCOSS was established in 1935 to promote cooperation in the provision of community services and influence social legislation. Today our constituents are:
disadvantaged and low income people and communities in NSW
other peak community service agencies in NSW
other agencies working in the social policy and social services field
individual members interested in social policy and social service issues .
NCOSS provides an independent voice on welfare policy issues and social and economic reforms and is the major co-ordinator for non-government social and community services in NSW. We act as a channel for consultation with government and between parts of the non-government sector with common interests and diverse functions.
