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.  The idea of building a Sydney Alliance was first raised in May 2007, and by November that same year was financially supported by 13 organisations.  The Alliance launched with 45 partner organisations on 15 September 2011.

The Alliance has three goals.  We work with our partner organisations to:

  1. Increase and strengthen the leadership capacity of their members, their leaders, and staff.
  2. Deepen the relationships across civil society by strengthening the relationships between our partner organisations.
  3. Act for the ‘Common Good’.
