Putting Regional Needs on the Map

October 24, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am


NCOSS invites you to join us on Thursday, 24 October for a breakfast event where you will hear directly from a broad coalition of voices to discuss the common concern of economic disadvantage across NSW.

This is an invaluable opportunity to hear from guest speaker, journalist and author of ‘Rusted Off – Why Country Australia is Fed Up’ Gabrielle Chan. With over 30 years of journalism experience, Gabrielle has lived in both regional and metro NSW, experiencing firsthand the cultural and economic divide.

We will also be launching the ‘Mapping Economic Disadvantage in NSW’ report undertaken by NCOSS in conjunction with the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM).

The ‘Putting Regional Needs on the Map’ event is a rare occasion that brings together individuals from regional and metro social service organisations, academics, individuals, corporate organisations and local and state government representatives. This will allow attendees the chance to build connections that may otherwise be hindered by distance and build lasting relationships to build the city/ country divide.

Check out the full list of panelists here.
