NCOSS was founded in 1934 during the Great Depression when unemployment rose to 28% and extreme poverty was rampant. With few government programs available, assistance was provided through a limited number of overstretched religious charities. A small group was motivated to improve the lives of those suffering and so the NSW Council of Social Services was formed, to coordinate relief efforts and maximise benefit for those in need. Our core vision remains unchanged; a NSW free from poverty and inequality.
