“The latest report from the Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board is not a celebration of good healthcare, but a sad story of the loss of hope and care for vulnerable people." The Victorian Bishops of Victoria release a statement on 2 September 2020 in response to the Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board’s Report of Operation January – June 2020.

In response to the Bishops’ Social Justice Statement 2020/21 ‘To Live Life to the Full’ on mental health, and consistent feedback and discussion over the past few weeks with member organisations and others in the community, Catholic Social Services Victoria is hosting a lunchtime zoom network forum on counselling and therapeutic supports available in the time of COVID-19, from 12:30pm-2:00pm, on Wednesday 9th September, which is the day before World Suicide Prevention Day. 

The St Vincent de Paul Society’s National Council welcomes the release today [2 September 2020] of the third 2020 publication from the five-year Poverty and Inequality Partnership between the Australian Council of Social Service and the University of NSW. It summarises the extent and effects of income and wealth inequality pre COVID-19 and provides a lens through which to assess the impacts of COVID-19 as the pandemic continues and governments and businesses respond.

In a recent letter to Members of Catholic Social Services Victoria (CSSV), Chair of Council of CSSV, Bernie Cronin, writes, “CSSV is at a pivotal point in time. NOW is the time for you to have your say.” The call-to-action comes as CSSV undergoes a review of its Constitution, and acknowledges that a proportional share of funding has shifted towards increased member contributions.
