Welcome to the Spotlight on... series. In this interview series we spend five minutes with some of the leading figures in Queensland's community services sector and talk to them about the work they are doing and how they see the future of the sector.
We encourage those in the sector who are seeing cost of living impacts on the ground to visit and complete our survey. This will help us identify the real issues that sit behind these concerning statistics.”
