The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) is the peak body of the community services and welfare sector and the national voice for the needs of people affected by poverty and inequality. Each year, ACOSS holds a National Conference to bring together key decision makers, practitioners, researchers and the people at the front line of social policy and services.
In 2014 the conference theme is ‘Global problems, local solutions: Tackling inequality in Australia and beyond’, and the conference program will feature international guest speakers and Australian leaders presenting a way forward for tackling poverty and inequality. The ACOSS conference will also profile the G20 agenda for Inclusive Growth and identify opportunities for the community sector to engage with C20 advocacy for more inclusive and sustainable social and economic policy.
