In Conversation with the Honourable Di Farmer MP

 Registration is closed for this event

Minister for Education and Youth Justice the Honourable Di Farmer MP is tasked with overseeing the creation and enactment of a youth justice strategy that will safeguard children’s rights and lives as well as keeping our communities safe.

The community services sector is central to the success of this strategy.  

Over the past few months, many of us have provided feedback on the state of Queensland’s youth justice system through submissions to the draft youth justice plan, Putting Queensland Kids Firstand the Youth Justice Reform Select Committee Inquiry.

Find out how our intelligence will be acted on at this essential In Conversation event, hosted by QCOSS CEO Aimee McVeigh.

Speaker details

The Honourable Di Farmer MP is the Queensland Government Minister for Education and Minister for Youth Justice, and Member for Bulimba.

Di grew up in Central Queensland and was taught the value of education as the most powerful tool we have to achieve progress and change. 

In December 2023, Di was sworn in as the Minister for Education and Youth Justice.  It is an important combination because if someone is in the youth justice system – they almost certainly disengaged from education from an early age. Di knows that investing in our education system to make sure students stay engaged with their learning prevents more difficult issues later in their lives, which is just one of the reasons for why the Queensland Government made kindy free in 2024.

Di is a strong believer in the importance of access to high quality education no matter where someone lives or what their circumstances are. 

Education and teachers are the answer to a better future for all Queenslanders.
