BHP has engaged CSIRO to create a real-time channel for you to tell them what you’re thinking.

The October survey is focusing on wellbeing, and the role of BHP in supporting important local economic activity. As the situation with COVID-19 progresses the community will also be invited to share comments, thoughts, and suggestions about COVID-19.

The survey is open for 4 weeks. Once closed CSIRO will compile the results which will be shared with BHP and the community.

For every survey completed a donation is made to a local not-for-profit community group. To date, more than $19,000 worth of donation have been unlocked for grass-root community groups around Australia.

Project Leader for CSIRO, Dr Kieren Moffat says “joining and participating in Local Voices provides a way for community to be heard by BHP about the challenges and concerns they have. We aim to ensure a diverse sample of community members are represented in the program and new participants are welcome at any time.”

Once registered, participants automatically receive an invitation to participate every quarter.

The results from all the surveys undertaken to date, including community responses regarding COVID-19 collected during April, May and June 2020 are available on the Local Voices Website.
