What will it take to create a Normanton community where everyone contributes, matters, and belongs?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is here and brings opportunities to build and shape inclusive, thriving communities. Changing Lives, Changing Communities – Normanton is about bringing together all parts of the community to co-create solutions to ensure people with disability are included in their community, and can access what they need like a place to call home, good health, transport, education, and a job.

This event will focus on what we have achieved and what more we can do together.

During the two days we will discuss the stories we want to tell in our communities and how they can change the outcomes for people with disability and people everywhere. Then we will work through a process to create the movement for change.

This will be a hands-on session, drawing from the strength and wisdom in the room, to develop a vision and key actions for change.

Bring a friend, bring a colleague. Changing Lives, Changing Communities – Normanton is your opportunity to be part of a movement for change towards an inclusive Normanton by 2030.

View the agenda for Changing Lives, Changing Communities – Normanton

We know that a thriving community is one that is connected, engaged and working towards a shared vision, and a good life is one in which people can participate both socially and economically. We also know that the NDIS provides an opportunity to bring this change to life, both individually and for communities.

QCOSS, Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) and the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland (ADCQ) are working together to drive social change! We want all people in Queensland to enjoy a high quality of life and have access to opportunities that make this possible – quality education, accessible and affordable housing, and transport, meaningful employment, quality health and a thriving, connected community.

Changing Lives, Changing Communities – Normanton is funded through Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) National Readiness Grants – National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) –  a partnership between QDN, QCOSS and ADCQ.
