A NSW free from poverty and inequality


1 in 7 campaign

1 in 7 children in NSW experience poverty. But there's action the NSW Government can take now to ensure poverty does not determine these children's life chances. Show your support for the 1 in 7 campaign today.

Empower the West

Communities in the Far West and Western NSW face significant challenges. Access to opportunities and services in these areas is often hampered by levels of investment that do not fully account for the impact of distance, sparse population density and levels of need. Too often, this translates to substandard services and people who are already financially disadvantaged facing out-of-pocket costs that they cannot realistically meet. By investing just $13 million per year communities in Western NSW and the Far West could be empowered to make positive change in their region.

Fair deal for our community services

Fair Deal for our Community Services is about building a stronger partnership between government and our sector in order to develop fair and reasonable reform and procurement processes.
