Advocating for change.
As part of our mission to inspire people, enliven communities and confront injustice, we raise a collective voice to speak up for those who may not be heard.
Raising a voice and restoring community
Uniting for a cause.
At Uniting, we come alongside our consumers, striving to inspire people, enliven communities and confront injustice.
Positive change is possible if we work together. Speaking up and standing as one, we can influence our world and protect our most vulnerable people.
By delivering a strong consumer voice in our advocacy work, we include:
Consumers are heard by decision-makers
Our advocacy is based on lived experience.
Consumers share in the decision making about our advocacy.
Advocacy in action.
Advocacy submissions, papers and reports
We engage directly with government, legislature and other stakeholders to confront injustice and raise issues of importance to Uniting consumers.
We work alongside our consumers and Uniting staff to produce policy positions and submissions to inquiries, royal commissions and government planning
Campaign and partners
We enter into partnerships with like-minded organisations, to increase public awareness of issues and influence public debate.
We also seek to influence governments to improve public policy and increase investment into underfunded public services. This includes partnership with the broader Uniting family of agencies.
We work within sector alliances to amplify influence, reach and impact on key issues of interest to consumers.
