Your voice matters
The survey for December & January has now closed
Thank you to everyone who participated in the latest 'pulse' survey, where we explored the environmental impacts of Oaky Creek Coal, procedural fairness and much more.
Our team is busy analysing the data and we look forward to sharing insights with the community soon.
'Pulse' surveys are conducted once every 6 months, and you can join Local Voices anytime. If you would like to be notified when the next survey is open please register your details below:
What is Local Voices?
Voconiq Local Voices is a unique community engagement program based on research conducted by Australia's national science agency, CSIRO. Glencore Australia has engaged us to provide communities neighbouring their Oaky Creek Coal operation with the opportunity to express their views and experiences.
Glencore Oaky Creek Coal has committed to using community insights in their decision-making, and while they may not be able to solve every issue raised, the business will be better informed on the things that matter most to your local community.

Local Voices surveys are conducted quarterly and are designed to track changes in sentiment over time. You can explore the results from all past surveys including the 'pulse' survey from January 2022.
Nominations for community group rewards are still open!

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.
