Catholic social service agencies do not stand alone in their work for right social relationships. The nature of our work is necessarily cooperative and collaborative. We continue to make efforts to bring together and work closely with other groups and sectors – education, health and business as well the broader Church community and Government.
We continue to convene network committees, working groups and steering committees for research and project work, to make submissions and join in solidarity with various campaigns that incorporate and disseminate the knowledge of members and collaborators from across Victoria to influence Government leadership and policy decisions.
