Reports and Submissions

Through lobbying governments we give a voice to those who need our support. And we’re proud to celebrate our achievements, week-by-week and year-by-year, in the reports and submissions we generate. 

A voice of hope

Transforming lives and communities is worth fighting for. This is why we’re constantly lobbying, influencing policy, transforming society – using our standing in the community to give strength to individuals and empower communities so they can be heard.

Our reports showcase the transformational programs and services we’re delivering every day. We’re incredibly proud of the positive impacts we have on people and communities, so it’s our pleasure to share our achievements.
