    Social Policy Events

    A range of social policy events are held throughout the year, aimed at informing and engaging with social sector practitioners and advocates. The WACOSS Policy and Advocacy team host annual seminars such as the Emerging Issues Forum and Budget Presentation, as well as numerous events throughout the year that allow focus on specific policy changes and developments impacting the sector.

    These seminars provide a unique opportunity for WA community service organisations and their workers to keep up to date with the issues influencing the sector and the advocacy being undertaken by WACOSS on behalf of the WA community and the sector.
