Changing Lives, Changing Communities - Round 2 -Mackay

What will it take to continue our work together to create communities where everyone contributes, matters and belongs?   

Across Queensland, communities are looking to work together to make a difference, to create a place where everyone contributes, matters and belongs. You are invited to come along to work with your neighbours and colleagues to make your community the best it can be. This is an invitation to come along and work together, taking your place to drive change in your community.

Who is it for? 

Everyone. Absolutely everyone. Great ideas and great change happen when we gather with people from across the whole community. Creating a great community is everybody’s business. If you came to our forum last year, this is the opportunity to further develop the great connections and ideas that were developed. If you didn’t come last year, this is your chance to be part of a conversation and action for change.   

Come along and bring a friend, a colleague, a neighbour.   

Your voice matters. Your actions contribute. You belong.   

What will happen? 

Together we will create a story of your community – a story that energises and lifts us all up.    

Together we will build stronger relationships – relationships that can transform us individually and collectively. We all have a role, and we are not alone.   

Together we will take action for change – action for ourselves and action for our community. Action that builds a community where everyone contributes, matters and belongs.   

This work is in partnership with QCOSS, Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) and Queensland Human Rights Commission (QHRC).
