ABOUT US

Our focus is to provide personalised assistance to those who are most in need of support.

 

Our approach utilises the unique perspectives of the direct personal life experiences of each of our volunteers.

Direct experience is powerful and real - it is not learnt from a textbook! 

The lived experiences of our members and volunteers mean we can offer greater empathy, understanding, advice and unique personalised service to empower our clients.

MISSION

DCSS stands for Diverse Community & Social Services (formally known as LGBTIQ – Support & Protection Services Inc.)

 

We are a not-for-profit (NFP) Incorporated Community and Social Support Services, Community Justice Organisation based throughout Australia.

 

We were founded in 2014 under our principal founding partner LGBTIQ - Support & Protection Services Inc., incorporated in 2016, became state registered Fundraiser Charities in both states of New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria (VIC) in 2018, we then resolved to become DCSS Australia Inc. at our AGM in January 2019.

HISTORY

At DCSS Australia we focus on supporting people who have incurred specific fines and debt in Victoria (VIC) and New South Wales (NSW).

We are accredited under Section 10H of the Fines Reform Act 2014 (Victoria Department of Justice) and under Section 99A of the Fines Act 1996 (NSW Revenue Department).

We also engage in community support and development programs across Australia, helping people navigate their way through various challenges, to ensure an equal and just outcome for all parties.

WHAT WE DO

DCSS Australia is the only LGBTIQA+, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI), CALD, Diversity and Inclusion focused organisation which delivers a dual-accredited Community Justice Program operating in Victoria (VIC) and New South Wales (NSW).

 

We are not limited to a specific community or social support services sector; therefore, we are able to assist the community wherever it is required, and in alignment with the capabilities of our team.

 

Our focus is to provide personalised assistance to those who are most in need of support.

The Communities that we serve are people with psycho-social and physical health difficulties, and we assist them to better manage the challenges of everyday life in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

 

We are rapidly expanding our services and programs, as well as partnering with other community organisations to help people within the community reach their goals!
