City of Newcastle's community panel (Newcastle Voice) is one of the tools we use to engage with the community to better understand issues and opinions on a variety of topics to help inform our decision-making.

Over 2,500 people have signed up to have their say on projects, events and initiatives in Newcastle.

As a member, you will be invited to have your say on our policies, programs and projects through:

  • Online tools and short surveys
  • Community workshops, information sessions or focus groups, and
  • Quick polls

Participation in these activities is entirely voluntary.
If you receive an invitation to have your say on a topic that you're not interested in, you can simply ignore the invitation - maybe the next invitation will be for a topic you're passionate about!

As a member, you will also receive regular e-newsletter updates with feedback from engagement activities and information about other activities across Newcastle.
