Local voices matter

The GasFields Commission Queensland has engaged Voconiq to better understand the views and experiences of rural and regional communities in central and southern Queensland regarding the onshore gas industry.

The survey has now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to have their say. 

Your insights will contribute to a better understanding of community views and assist the GasFields Commission Queensland in undertaking their work to support respectful and balanced relationships in the gas fields.

Our team are analysing the data, and we look forward to sharing the insights with the community and GasFields Commission Queensland soon.

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.
