Empowering advocacy Hero grant

Voices for Power – a multicultural movement advocating for low income and migrant energy consumer needs

The work undertaken by advocates and other organisations through the Grants Program is having influence, improving outcomes for energy consumers. Great Grants showcase important work that has built new evidence or demonstrated impact.

Voices for Power – a multicultural movement advocating for low income and migrant energy consumer needs has been selected as one of our Great Grants.

The Sydney Alliance is a diverse coalition of community organisations, religious organisations, unions, and schools that uses the tools of community organising to make the city a better place to live.

Their project Voices for Power brings cultural and religious leaders and communities together to build collective power and organise for Affordable and Renewable energy solutions.

Members of CALD and religious community leaders play and important organising role in their communities and are often sought out to resolve energy problems, especially where language and cultural barriers make communicating with service providers challenging.

An integral part of this program’s work was the Open Letter to Energy Retailers – Bills Relief during COVID-19, which helped to establish expectations of the energy sector in a difficult time for consumers.
