City Support for Sydney Alliance

At its last meeting, Council unanimously endorsed my Lord Mayoral Minute congratulating the Sydney Alliance and its members on their launch held in the Sydney Town Hall earlier this month.

Councillors unanimously voted to waive the venue hire fees for Sydney Town Hall for this event and joined me to ask the City’s CEO to identify further in-kind support the City could provide to the Alliance.

The Sydney Alliance is a coalition that brings together diverse community, health, welfare and religious organisations, unions and other membership-based organisations to work together to improve life for Sydney’s diverse communities.

I was proud to join more than 2000 Sydneysiders at Town Hall for the public launch of the Alliance and its program – ‘Agenda for the Common Good’.

The Agenda, which is the result of almost four years work building trust and relationships between over 40 partner organisations representing some 500,000 people across greater Sydney, prioritises three areas – all of which the City strongly supports:

  • Transport;
  • Social inclusion; and
  • Community care and health.

The City shares the Sydney Alliance’s commitment to building a fair, inclusive and sustainable city for all people of Sydney.

Every year since 2007 I've hosted the Under 16s at Town Hall on Anzac Day. The Under 16s were a group of young soldiers who were only 14 or 15 at the time of the war and who lied about their age so that they could protect our country. The courage and sacrifice of all of those who serve is remarkable, but these men, who were boys when they enlisted, is truly extraordinary. I always find sharing Anzac Day with them a moving experience.

Sydney is a fast-paced city, but safety should always be our first priority. It’s not worth risking your life or someone else’s to get to your destination a few seconds faster. This week the City launched a new road safety campaign to highlight the number of accidents occurring in the city’s most dangerous areas -- the more we’re all aware of our most dangerous traffic areas, the more we can be mindful and exercise caution.
