The Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS) is the state-wide peak body for individuals and organisations working in the social and community service sector.
For almost 60 years, QCOSS has been a leading force for social change to build social and economic wellbeing for all. With members from throughout Queensland, QCOSS undertakes informed advocacy and supports a strong community service sector.
QCOSS’ key activities focus on providing effective policy advice, working to strengthen responsive community services and having productive partnerships with the community sector, government, private sector, academia, media and the broader community. This work is done with a Queensland free of poverty and disadvantage front of mind.
QCOSS, together with our members, provides a crucial advocacy role in a broad number of areas including:
- place-based approaches
- citizen-led policy development
- cost-of-living advocacy
- sector capacity and capability building
QCOSS is part of the national network of Councils of Social Service lending support and gaining essential insight to national and other state issues.
