About 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.

Community Rewards

We support the communities we work in through the Voconiq Local Voices Rewards Program. This allows eligible community groups (such as school P&C's, charities, and not-for-profit clubs and organisations) within the region of the study to nominate for donations.

Every time a survey is completed, community members can assign a donation to one or more community groups registered with Voconiq Local Voices in their area.

Your voice can help the community groups you care about!

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.
