Your Say IPC (community engagement tool)
Your Say IPC is an online portal used by us to gather feedback from the public and other stakeholder groups through a variety of different avenues. This includes allowing citizens to post shared experiences, rank ideas and views, complete online surveys, respond to quick polls and answer posed questions.
The results of consultations completed using Your Say IPC can inform our production of guidance material to assist agencies and the public in identifying the most positive public participation practices. The identification and implementation of those practices supports agencies’ compliance with the GIPA Act and promotes a culture that advances a representative democratic government that is open, accountable, fair and effective.
Any feedback we receive through the tools on Your Say IPC is collated and considered for our decision-making and organisational activities. View the Your Say IPC page for more information.
NSW Have your say
Have Your Say is a website that enables NSW Government agencies to publicise consultations being conducted throughout the state. The site provides a central place for the public to search via their location and/or by topic to discover consultations that interest them. It enables them to share their views and ideas on Government plans to improve services, the economy and infrastructure in NSW. We use Have Your Say as an additional channel whenever we commence a consultation.
If you are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment, contact us through the National Relay Service on 133 677 for assistance.
If you do not speak English, or English is your second language, and you need assistance to communicate with us, call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450.
Information on privacy and government access information, including how to make a complaint or request a review, is now available in a range of community languages.
