SACOSS logo‘Taxing times – sustaining vital services’

The SACOSS 2014 Conference will be themed around Sustaining Vital Services, and will raise a range of issues which are of importance to the social service sector and to vulnerable and disadvantaged people in South Australia. Issues include the need for a sustainable tax base to fund vital services and income supports, key social justice issues such as housing, health, justice and social participation, as well as sector-specific concerns about contracting and red tape burdens on charities providing services.

Coming just a month before the SA state election, the conference provides a platform to raise these subjects at a vital time in SA’s political processes. SACOSS hopes the discussion will not only inform and inspire conference participants, but will impact on wider political debates.
