Looking for a new challenge in 2019? Are you passionate about social justice and ready for the challenge of changing lives and changing communities? We're looking for an extraordinary Senior Community Capacity Officer in Mount Isa.
QCOSS welcomes the Palaszczuk government’s support for all five recommendations of the Transport and Public Works Committee’s inquiry into the operation of toll roads. The committee recommended monitoring and reduction of fees and charges, a Queensland Toll Road ombudsman, earlier contact with customers and preventing enforcement action whilst disputes are unresolved.
The Energy Savvy Families Program helps give Queenslanders the power to manage their electricity bills. Participating families can learn more about their energy use and simple ways to manage their electricity costs. It’s free, it’s fun and you’ll be in the running to win rewards, such as one of 10 x $1,500 energy efficient appliance vouchers. Local Energy Savvy Families program champions are on hand to help with acccessing the program and help participants get the most out of the program.
We are very excited to announce the next stage of the QCOSS Movement for change – a series of Changing Lives, Changing Communities events in 13 locations across Queensland. These events will build on the knowledge gained and actions developed on the second day of the QCOSS State Conference - Movement for change that was held in Brisbane in May.
