VCOSS consults widely to ensure our policy platform is current and relevant.

We regularly consult with VCOSS members, community leaders and people with lived experience of disadvantage, hardship or exclusion.

These consultations inform our understanding of issues, and help us develop solutions-based policy proposals.

We then advocate these policy proposals to government, across the media and in other forums, both privately and publicly.

Most consultations are for VCOSS-members only.

However, some sessions are open to all community sector organisations.
