ACOSS said that the awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations operating within the community sector.

“For the first time individuals and organisations working within the community service sector across Australia will have the opportunity to be recognised for the contribution they are making to improve the lives of people experiencing poverty and inequality,” ACOSS said in a statement.
