The Butchulla people are the Traditional Owners of K’gari (Fraser Island) and have been the custodians of the area that is now know as the Fraser Coast for thousands of years.
In July 2016 QCOSS partnered with Queensland Families and Child Commission (QFCC) to develop and implement an initiative for place-based sector development in Central Queensland. This work engages communities to empower local networks of services to prioritise initiatives in partnership with community.
This case study showcases an important element of place-based work. It also demonstrates just what can be achieved when a community, a peak body and government work together.
