Northern Territory Council of Social Service
Welcome to the 2016 edition of the Northern Territory Council of Social Service Directory of
Social Service Community Organisations in the Northern Territory. We hope you find this a
useful resource for your day-to-day work.

NTCOSS is a peak body of the non-for-profit sector in the NT and an advocate for those who
are most disadvantaged in our community. We do this in many different ways such as
working with our member organisations to develop policy; advocacy to government;
working with organisations to build their capacity to deliver effective services to their
clients; and working with other peak bodies.

You can also find an updated version of this Directory online at www.ntcoss.org.au

If you would like to provide feedback on the directory or would like your organisation to
become a member of NTCOSS, please contact us.
