What we do?


  • We use social media in local communities to fill the void of local newspapers.

  • We collectively source data and publish it to hold Councils accountable.

  • We extensively work with the Media to address issues.

  • We lobby state lawmakers and Councillors to improve local government​.

  • We raise up local groups of people and empower them to take on their local council.

More than ever, amidst a cost-of-living crisis - we need value and efficiency from our councils.

Your membership funds are used for basic services for all members, and to conduct research in the public interest. Committee members receive no pay. We use our own phones, our own time and our own skills and experience. We are committed, professional and persistent.  

Like any volunteer organisation, we are limited by money - so donating or becoming a member is the best way you can support us.
