 The Church has a social and moral responsibility to increase its commitment and efforts to help the suffering of the world’s poor - Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin at CSSV breakfast on 15 July

 Around 30 members of Catholic Social Services Victoria gathered in East Melbourne last Monday evening for the first of three workshops in our Pathways to Partnership series planned during this latter half of 2014.

 This evening workshop was attended by 8 participants from CSSV membership across Victoria on 10 April 2014.

We have just recently had our second Mission Network gathering (3 April) with 10 people involved in mission formation and service across the Catholic social services sector. We reflected together on the impact of Pope Francis’ message of joy, mercy and hope in his recent ‘Exhortation’ The Joy of the Gospel  and on his others words and actions during this first year of his pontificate.

 Click here for our April Update, which includes:
  • A volatile policy environment
  • 12 March Annual Mass and AGM
  • Social Inclusion for people with Disability
  • Suspended Sentences: Abolition fuelling a perfect storm
  • Education Maintenance Allowance
  • The Joy of the Gospel
  • World Day of Peace

There is much to be done across our society to ensure that all people feel valued, their differences are respected, and their basic needs are met so they can live in dignity.

Our submission to a current Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into social inclusion for people with disability makes recommendations around promoting a culture of acceptance and of equal citizenship;  provision of enabling infrastructure; effective service design, including services directed at people who experience particular disadvantage, such as young people with disability living in nursing homes; and adequate funding of Government-funded services.

CSSV joins other members of the Education Equity Alliance in calling for the Education Maintenance
