On May 1 we celebrate the Feast of St Joseph the Worker and International Worker's Day. Catholic Social Services Victoria stands in solidarity with workers, particularly those across the social services. Chair of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference Commission for Social Justice - Mission and Service, Bishop Vincent Long, reminds us in his message for today about the importance of the conditions of those who are employed, and also the need for solidarity with those who are excluded from being able to work and the need for adequate welfare support.

Catholic Religious Australia (CRA) has joined a coalition of 44 Catholic leaders, including 14 religious institute leaders, who have written to the Prime Minister advocating for the most vulnerable people in our community to receive government support as the impacts of COVID-19 continue to wreak havoc. To read the letter to the Prime Minister, click here.

The Victorian Council for Social Service and the Department of Health and Human Services are running a second information forum about the ongoing sector response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This digital-only forum will be held on Wednesday 29 April vcoss.org.au/live. Participants are asked to register so you can be sent slides and reference materials (etc) both before and after the session. Register now.

The Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS) releases a regular bulletin with latest news and information related to the community services sector and COVID-19.

Plus much more!
