Advocacy is a key and important role of Network as a peak body, representing our members, the Out of School Hours sector of NSW. We build relationships with government, politicians and specialist organisations to ensure the OOSH voice is heard.
How do we do this?
Network develops position papers and submissions based on input from our membership organisations as well as the knowledge and expertise from staff and Board members within our organisations. From time to time, we also seek support from external stakeholders, professional bodies and individuals when relevant. .
Network leads or contributes to the development of formal collective responses with our membership for which lead to better outcomes for our sector. However, we also make independent submissions on matters that have the potential for significant impact on our members.
Network also comments on a range of issues through written submission either independently or in collaboration with other peak bodies.
