This Conference will explore vulnerability and showcase better practice in addressing the associated issues.

The Conference sessions will include:
- Exploration of vulnerability including factors leading to and key indicators
- Leading business initiatives and programs
- National research on tariffs, disconnections and fees and charges

Building on the success of SACOSS’ Hardship and Affordability Conferences over the past 3 years, the 2016 Conference will bring together leaders from the energy, water and telecommunications sectors and once again promises to be a significant gathering of policy makers, business leaders, regulators, non-profit organisations and community service providers.
