Housing, health and asylum seekers on the agenda for Northern Sydney Assembly

Assembly_shot.jpgTomorrow’s Northern Sydney Assembly will bring together local religious groups, community organisations, schools and trade unions to form a powerful voice for Northern Sydney in the lead up to next year’s NSW State Election.


The Northern Sydney Assembly, organized by Sydney Alliance, will take place on Thursday 30 October at Mercy Catholic College in Chatswood, starting at 6.30pm sharp.

Assembly Co-Chair Rabbi Zalman Kastel said the Assembly would unite Northern Sydney’s broad and diverse communities under a new agenda for the common good.

“It will be great to have so many different people from different groups together in one room, focusing on the things that unite us,” Rabbi Kastel said.

“We’ll be talking about important local issues such as affordable housing, services for asylum seekers, and access to specialist health and medical services - such as improved palliative care and a public lymphoedema clinic."

Assembly Co-Chair Rev Dr Rob McFarlane said around 200 people were expected to attend the Northern Sydney Assembly 

“Northern Sydney is a wonderful place to live, but our region also faces some difficult challenges, particularly around the spiraling cost of housing.

“The region also has the highest proportion of people over the age of 75 in NSW, making access to health services a key priority for local residents and their families. 

“This assembly will not only highlight these challenges, it will present community-driven solutions to help light the path for our political leaders.”


The Northern Sydney Assembly will be held tomorrow night (Thursday, 30 October 2014).
