About CAP

The Coalition Against PFAS (CAP) represents communities around Australia contaminated by PFAS chemicals.

About Us

The Coalition Against PFAS

CAP - has three key aims:

    • To inform, advocate for and connect impacted communities. More and more communities around Australia are discovering they have unwittingly been caught up in PFAS contamination emanating from Government airfields and other sites.
    • To act as a national voice on PFAS contamination. Given the dispersed and often regional locations of PFAS contamination the Federal Government has too often been willing to downplay the issue as a few isolated cases.
    • Australia is well behind international developments and research on this important issue. CAP aims to highlight locally what’s happening globally.
