At Lock the Gate, we depend on the help of our passionate and dedicated volunteers. Without the people who generously contribute their time, skills and energy to support our work we would not be able to achieve our mission to protect our common heritage - our land, water and communities - from unsafe or inappropriate mining for coal seam gas and other fossil fuels.
Lock the Gate volunteers enjoy the fulfilment that comes from making a vital difference to the communities they live in. It is also a great way to gain experience, develop new skills, meet new people and get involved in the movement.
If you tick the 'other' box, please be sure to let us know in the comments section what you'd like to help out with! Please also tell us about any expertise and specific skills you have.

Bishops, wine-makers, livestock producers and conservationists have penned a joint letter to NSW Premier Mike Baird calling on him to protect our common home from a coal mining industry that is out of control. You can read the full text of the joint letter here
Our common home, our farmland, rivers, villages and bushland are being torn up or ruined for coal mining. How long are coal affected communities expected to wait for the Government to do something to fix up coal mining?
We've put an ad in Mike Baird's local paper, the Manly Daily, and want all of you to give him a call and add your voice to the push to reform coal mining and save our communities, landscapes and rural industries. Can you call him?
