On the 17th July 2023, we participated in an engaging event, Mapping Economic Disadvantage in Western Sydney – Nepean Blue Mountains Presentation and sector discussion on poverty and disadvantage in Nepean Blue Mountains, to shed light on poverty and disadvantage in the Nepean Blue Mountains region. Hosted by Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF) and NSW Council of Social Service (NCOSS) at our South Penrith Neighbourhood Centre, the event brought together passionate individuals committed to addressing these pressing issues.
Under the skilful guidance of MC, Joshua Bird from WSCF, the event featured informative presentations by respected speakers:
🎙️ Shravan Guntuku – WSCF
🎙️ Joanna Quilty – NCOSS
🎙️ Joy Impiombato – NCNS
Drawing from the insightful “Mapping Economic Disadvantage in NSW” report and 2016-2021 Census data, the discussions provided valuable insights into poverty rates and their impact on specific groups within the Nepean Blue Mountains region.
The event fostered collaboration and collective brainstorming to identify practical strategies and advocate for policy changes. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants for their valuable contributions and unwavering commitment to building a more inclusive community.
