About Local Voices
Voconiq Local Voices is a unique community engagement program developed using research conducted by Australia's national science agency, CSIRO.
Northern Star Resources has engaged Voconiq to conduct ongoing analysis of community attitudes to the company's operations. This gives communities neighbouring its KCGM operations an opportunity to express their views and experiences inside the company, helping to inform the company's decision-making.

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.
