At its last meeting, Council unanimously endorsed my Lord Mayoral Minute congratulating the Sydney Alliance and its members on their launch held in the Sydney Town Hall earlier this month.
Councillors unanimously voted to waive the venue hire fees for Sydney Town Hall for this event and joined me to ask the City's CEO to identify further in-kind support the City could provide to the Alliance.
The Sydney Alliance is a coalition that brings together diverse community, health, welfare and religious organisations, unions and other membership-based organisations to work together to improve life for Sydney's diverse communities.
I was proud to join more than 2000 Sydneysiders at Town Hall for the public launch of the Alliance and its program - 'Agenda for the Common Good'.
The Agenda, which is the result of almost four years work building trust and relationships between over 40 partner organisations representing some 500,000 people across greater Sydney, prioritises three areas - all of which the City strongly supports:
- Social inclusion; and
- Community care and health.
The City shares the Sydney Alliance's commitment to building a fair, inclusive and sustainable city for all people of Sydney.
