QCOSS Member Benefits

Participating in campaigns and other work

By joining QCOSS, individuals and organisations across the state help build a fairer Queensland and a stronger sector. Members contribute to QCOSS’s advocacy work as well as inform, support and strengthen sector development projects. The role of QCOSS members in participating in campaigns aimed at addressing social and income inequality and unjust wealth distribution is crucial.

Conferences and events

QCOSS members are able to develop their skills and broaden their knowledge by taking advantage of generous member-only discounts to attend QCOSS conferences and events.
