Changing Lives, Changing Communities: Round one (2018-19)

  • Changing Lives, Changing Communities Banner

Changing Lives, Changing Communities are 12, two-day events across Queensland, creating new ways for people – citizens, community organisations, the private sector and government representatives – to come together, envision and ask “what will it take to create communities where everyone contributes, matters and belongs?”

Changing Lives, Changing Communities is about bringing together all parts of the community to co-create solutions to ensure everyone is included in their community, and can access what they need; like a place to call home, good health, transport, education, and meaningful employment.

This work is in partnership with QCOSS, Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) and Anti Discrimination Commission Queensland (ADCQ).

*The Changing Lives Changing Communities events in Toowoomba, Mackay, Caboolture, Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Normanton are funded through Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) National Readiness Grants – National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) –  a partnership between QDN, QCOSS and ADCQ.
