Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF) works to build strong, organised communities by bridging the divide between communities and policymakers at the local, regional, state and national levels. As a capacity building and advocacy organisation WSCF ensures a voice for people working daily with the challenges facing the region, connecting those too often left out.

Western Sydney Community Forum has been working with the Sydney Business Chamber Western Sydney Office and the Sydney Office of Regional Development Australia to promote a discussion about the possibilities of a Sydney West Airport.
We have created a set of resources for people to use to help talk and think about the issue. WSCF is also available to provide an information session for community sector organisations who may be interested in or affected by the proposal.

Many of our member organisations have received reassurances from their local members that there have been no cuts to Community Builders Fixed Term funding. However, we still have concerns regarding the allocations of 2012-13 Community Builders Fixed Term funding program.
Key issues of concern:
The turnaround on a new process to allocate this funding before the end of this financial year is very tight. We understand the Minister intends to allocate this money to innovative programs consistent with the Program’s aims. Given the high interest in this program we believe that this process should be open to all those organisations that were unsuccessful. We strongly recommend that the remaining funds are allocated to those projects that ranked next most high.
Of over 400 tenders, only 11 were successful and 64% were deemed ineligible. Only a small proportion was deemed ineligible in previous rounds. This is an enormous waste of resources for both community organisations and local and state government. Issues of major concern are:
3. When will the 2013-2014 funding round be announced?
While we await information about the full allocation of the 2012-13 funding round, we would also like information about when the 2013-14 will be announced and the amount to be allocated.
