NCOSS Regional Forum – Dubbo

Late last month, we attended a regional feedback forum run by NCOSS and local host Mission Australia at Dubbo. Many community service providers were in the room and lively discussion was had on the topics of youth homelessness, domestic and family violence, First Nations incarceration rates, the ongoing housing crisis, social housing waitlists, and workforce challenges in the sector.

We understand NCOSS is using feedback from this forum for its representations to the Parliamentary Inquiry into Community Safety in Regional and Rural Communities. Well done to all the notable speakers, NCOSS, and Mission Australia for hosting this successful event!
