Publication date: 
May 2019

With the 2019 federal election coming up, the ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) hosted a forum with eight local candidates for the Senate and the House of Representatives in the seats of Bean, Fenner and Canberra. We designed the forum to stimulate local dialogue on federal issues looked at through a sharp local lens.

This reflections report provides an overview of the discussions at the forum. Briefs about policy priority areas can also be found below, as well as other documents made available at the forum.
