Queensland Council of Social Service

West End, Brisbane, Australia
Joined July 2018

QCOSS is the peak body for the social services sector in Queensland, Australia. Our vision is to achieve equality, opportunity and wellbeing for every person, in every community.

Presence in: Australia
Focus: Access to Information, Citizenship, Corruption, Economic Empowerment, Education, Environmental Justice, Generalist Legal Services, Housing & Sanitation, Labor & Employment, Women's Rights

QCOSS creates positive social change through our work in advocacy, policy development, engaging and empowering the social service sector and communities. We’re committed to self determination and opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

QCOSS believes that every person in Queensland – regardless of where they come from, who they pray to, their gender, who they love, how or where they live – deserves to live a life of equality, opportunity and wellbeing.

We are a conduit for change. We bring people together to help solve the big social issues faced by people in Queensland, building strength in numbers to amplify our voice. We connect communities, our members, the sector, other peak bodies, government and business, collaborating with our diverse stakeholders to create social change.

QCOSS acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original inhabitants of Australia and recognises these unique cultures as part of the cultural heritage of all Australians. We support their right to self-determination. We pay our respect to the Elders of this land; past, present and future.

We’re driven by an aspiration for a better future for every person, in every Queensland community.
