Hunter Community Alliance

Organising for the common good of the Hunter Region.

Our Mission

Our Alliance brings together diverse community organisations, environmental groups, unions and religious organisations to advance the common good and achieve fair, just and sustainable cities and regions. We do this by providing opportunities for people to have a say in decisions that affect them, their families and everyone working and living in our cities and regions. We are a non-party political organisation. Our membership represents about 250,000 people in the Hunter region.
