Welcome

We are delighted to welcome Queensland’s community services sector back to the QCOSS Conference.

We will explore Power and Politics of the Care Economy, with a fantastic range of sessions that will examine the broad trends impacting our sector including the future role of the care economy in Queensland, advancing gender equality, the Path towards Treaty, and the implementation of the Human Rights Act 2019 across the community services sector.

We will hear from Queensland’s politicians, service providers and thought leaders to discuss our sector’s future.

We look forward to seeing you.

Queensland Community Impact Awards

It’s time to celebrate our frontline heroes. The individuals and organisations that hold up our communities and help them thrive.

In 2022, QCOSS is recognising the enormous contribution of the community services sector. During the two years of COVID-19, these organisations and the people who work with them, have been essential to keeping Queensland’s communities connected and safe.

The awards will publicly recognise some of the hardest workers in our state in these areas: Community Impact, Frontline Hero, and Human Rights Impact.
