Other issues and resources


There are lots of issues that need to change for the better in NSW. Luckily there are a lot of people and organisations out there already doing their part. If you want to work on the big issues, chances are there’s someone out there you can get in touch with and offer to support.

The list below doesn’t include every issue you might be passionate about and only has one example of an organisation working in that area. There’s plenty more, this list is just to get you started so don’t forget to do some research. If there’s an issue, organisation or project you feel should definitely be on the list, give us your feedback.
