Council still an effective platform

THE Fiji Council of Social Services continues to be one of the most effective platforms to address social and policy issues faced by the grassroots people, says president Samuel Reuben.

Speaking at the Nadroga District Council of Social Services on Monday, Mr Reuben said millions of dollars had been effectively spent on social assistance programs in the 57 years of FCOSS' existence.

"In 1957 national non-government organisations and the government came together to form a collective voice and it was then when FCOSS was formed," he said.

"Many registered national NGOs including those who are not registered under the Charitable Trust Act such as mothers clubs, youth groups, faith-based organisations, community associations and other social service organisations remain a collective voice under the FCOSS platform."
