Every Queenslander deserves a place to call home, to be able to put food on the table, access education and healthcare, and be afforded a level of wellbeing.
Current social and human services systems don’t always provide those outcomes and changing the way we do things is essential to the wellbeing of every Queenslander.
We engage everyday with the Queensland Government on an ambitious reform agenda to improve outcomes for all Queensland.
The Queensland Community Services Peaks have been collaborating for change for decades, focused on some of the most vulnerable Queenslanders. Queensland’s Community Service Peaks are well positioned to use this collaborative capacity to support ambitious systemic reform across government, community and the private sector. Collectively we are more and can deliver more than if we stand alone.
QCOSS, COTA, NDS, Volunteering Queensland, ECCQ, Community Legal Centres Queensland, QShelter, QDN, PeakCare, QATSICPP, CSIA, Queensland Alliance for Mental Health and Tenants Queensland commit to working together and with all stakeholders to implement successful reform.
This peaks collaboration has developed the following resources:
- Peaks Collaboration Priorities 2018. In 2018 we identified four priorities for our attention. They are the NDIS, Family Matters, a Human Rights Act for Queensland and affordable and accessable housing. They are outlined in our priorities document here.
- Peak position on the Human Rights Act for Queensland - we support a Human Rights Act for Queensland to make sure we have better outcomes for everyone. Read more detail here.
