About Local Voices

Voconiq Local Voices is a unique community engagement program developed using research conducted by Australia's national science agency, CSIRO. Local Voices is giving communities around the world the opportunity to confidentially express their views and experiences with companies in their area. The insights generated help companies and communities build stronger relationships.

Bell Bay Aluminium is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto. Rio Tinto has engaged Voconiq to conduct an ongoing analysis of community attitudes to Bell Bay Aluminium. This gives neighbouring communities an opportunity to express their views and experiences inside the company, helping to inform the company's decision-making.

Each time a survey is completed, a donation is made to local community groups of your choice. It's our way of thanking you for your time and insights and supporting those groups so that they can continue their great work in the community.

How we work with you

Local Voices will provide the communities neighbouring Bell Bay Aluminium a way to express their views and experiences directly to the business, and help them engage on the issues that matter most to these communities. While Bell Bay Aluminium may not be able to solve every issue raised, it will be better informed on the things that matter most to your local community.

So have your say about what’s important to you, and your community can benefit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Local Voices is a specialised service offered by Voconiq which captures a full spectrum of opinion at a grassroots level around an industrial operation. It is a way for organisations to conduct a long-term regular analysis of community attitudes to the company’s operations in and around specific communities. It gives the communities neighbouring the operations a voice that is being heard by the company and is helping to inform business decision making.

A detailed 'anchor' survey (or baseline) is conducted to understand the key trust drivers in the community, followed by regular 'pulse' surveys to track changes over time. Surveys can be completed online, on mobile, pen and paper, or through brief phone interviews.

In addition, every survey can help earn money for local not-for-profit groups through the Voconiq Local Voices Community Reward Program. Every time a survey is completed, community members can assign a donation to one or more community groups registered with Voconiq.
