Hunter Community Alliance

Organising for the common good of the Hunter Region

HCA FOUNDING ASSEMBLY - REGISTER HERE

The Hunter Community Alliance brings together diverse communities, environmental groups, unions and religious organisations to advance the common good and achieve a fair, just and sustainable future for the region. We do this by providing opportunities for people to have a say in decisions that affect them and their families. We are a non-partisan organisation and take no government funding. Our membership is connected to over 250,000 people in the Hunter region.

The assembly is the next milestone of the HCA's four-year journey of listening, training, preparing and organising.

Assembly includes: 

Organised people: Each of us, displaying the diversity of our organisations and walks of life, the assembly includes a roll call, a public signing ceremony to found the alliance, and afterward will be invited to participate in future training and action.

Organised policies: You’ll hear testimonies and the case for action on the issues of the HCA’s common good agenda: affordable & social housing, the energy transition, community benefit agreements and royalties. Together we will endorse the agenda to take to Founding.  

Organised politics: We don't believe that politics should be left to politicians. NSW politicians will be asked to make public commitments to specific actions, and an ongoing relationship of negotiation.


The Founding Assembly will take place April 10th, 6:30pm-8:30pm at the University of Newcastle Great Hall, Callaghan. Register.

On Wednesday 8th of November 2023 the HCA gathered together at the Delegates Assembly.
