DIVERSE COMMUNITY & SOCIAL SERVICES (DCSS) AUSTRALIA

We are a Not For Profit Organisation based throughout Australia.

We are the only LGBTI+ focused organisation which delivers an accredited Community Justice Program.

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. Since we have ‘walked in the shoes’ of our clients, we understand what support is actually required.
 
DCSS stands for Diverse Community & Social Services.

We were founded in 2014 and incorporated in 2016 under our principal partner LGBTIQ - Support & Protection Services Inc.

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).

Further information about eligibility and about the programs can be found by visiting the following links:

NSW: https://www.revenue.nsw.gov.au/fines-and-fees/cant-pay-your-debt

If you would like to on-board with our organisation under our justice/WDOP program, please email us at Justice@dcssaustralia.org

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.

Our clients 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 and assist people to reach their goals!
