Vision, Voice, Value: Charting a New Course for the Social Service Sector

Date/Deadline: 17 Oct, 2022

After a tumultuous few years, NSW Council of Social Service (NCOSS) is excited to unveil the 2022 Vision, Voice, Value conference to recognise the vital role the social services sector has played in ‘getting us through’. It will be an opportunity to reflect on their successes; and consider how they can capitalise on their growing visibility as essential service providers – and their position as the largest growth industry in the state – to overcome the challenges that the events of the last few years have heightened. They will hear from big picture thinkers, sector leaders and frontline voices.

Leveraging the sector’s collective wisdom, they will take stock of what they have achieved, what lies ahead and what is needed for the future.

This face-to-face and online conference will allow people from across NSW to share their knowledge and lived experiences, particularly in the aftermath of fire, floods and COVID-19. And to grasp the opportunity to identify barriers and solutions to support real change. Attendees will actively engage with each other in thought-provoking discussions at this inspiring and insightful event.

Who should attend

The conference is FREE and for staff of not-for-profit organisations who operate in NSW with annual revenue of under $5 million.

They’d particularly love for you to join them if you’re:
– an Aboriginal Controlled Community Organisation (ACCO); and/or
– located in a regional or remote area; and/or
– a small organisation who receives the majority of their income from the NSW Government

This is an in-person event in Sydney for no more than 180 participants. Online options and regional ‘watch parties’ are currently being planned, too!
