|Vote 1 - Fairness in NSW|
NCOSS 2011 NSW State Election Campaign
The next New South Wales state election will occur on 26 March 2011.
In NSW there are still far too many people who do not enjoy the opportunities that most of us take for granted. An affordable and secure home, quality education, good health, a decent job with a fair income while working and in retirement, and a life free from discrimination and violence are sadly not enjoyed by far too many in our state.
NCOSS believes a fairer society is a better society for us all. It is, therefore, in everyone’s interests to care about what happens to the most vulnerable, disadvantaged and marginalised in our communities. The NCOSS 2011 State Election Platform – Vote 1 Fairness in NSW – calls for a range of measures that will make a difference for those people and communities that are doing it tough. Real, practical ideas that deliver improved outcomes and build a fairer society.
NCOSS has consulted widely through our networks to develop these policies and programs that will address both the symptoms and causes of disadvantage. These measures will improve the wellbeing, resilience and life opportunities for those who are vulnerable, disadvantaged and marginalised and in doing so improve the wellbeing of us all.
Vote 1 Fairness in NSW is a call for all current and aspiring politicians to agree to support measures that will contribute in a real and meaningful way to a fairer, more just and sustainable society. It is a call for us to make sure that when we vote in the State Election we are voting for fairness not just for ourselves but for us all.
