We are Queensland’s peak body for the social service sector.

Our vision is to achieve equality, opportunity and wellbeing for every person, in every community.

We believe that every person in Queensland – regardless of where they come from, who they pray to, their gender, who they love, how or where they live – deserves to live a life of equality, opportunity and wellbeing.

We are a conduit for change. We bring people together to help solve the big social issues faced by people in Queensland, building strength in numbers to amplify our voice.

We create positive social change through our work in advocacy, policy development, engaging and empowering our members, the social service sector and communities. We’re committed to self-determination and opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
