Submissions

A key focus area for ANCAD is ‘influencing local and central government policy’ and to ensure a community voice is heard in as many forums as possible. The insights and knowledge embedded in our communities can then have a chance to inform public policies and decisions. This is important locally, regionally and nationally. We invite feedback from the community sector on any submission we write or may hold a forum on a particualr issue.
