ACSO's Leadership Team

ACSO is an organisation with a bold vision to create a safe and inclusive community freed of crime and prisons. It’s our goal to reduce re-offending and our mission is to help people transition from prison, assist them in the community, stop them from re-offending and intervene to divert others from committing crime. 


We offer innovative services responding to unemployment, mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance use and offending behaviour in Victoria and New South Wales. 


These services are delivered through our ‘wrap around’ service delivery model that integrates early intervention and prevention programs, housing, high risk and complex needs services, community reintegration and education, training and employment services; to achieve better outcomes for our clients and the communities we serve.

The Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) proudly acknowledges Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and their rich culture and pays respect to their Elders past, present.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Australia’s 
first peoples and as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and water on which we rely.

We embrace the spirit of reconciliation, working towards equality of outcomes and ensuring an equal voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, including those who have come in contact with the justice system.

The Australian Community Support Organisation recognises the right to a safe and inclusive service without bias. ACSO is committed to the equitable treatment of its participants, employees and partners. We believe in humanity and celebrating the diverse voices of our community through leadership, practice and policy design, to honour and embrace diverse traditions, cultures and experiences of those we support and work alongside.
