Community services supporting people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Ipswich and Cairns are being invited to build on their strong networks and enhance client outcomes as part of a new sector collaboration project called Enabling Local Communities (ELC).

The ELC project will seek to identify and strengthen local leaders, identify service gaps, and work with local stakeholders to bridge those gaps and work together more cohesively to better meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable and at risk clients.

QCOSS will work closely with community services in Ipswich and Cairns to consolidate local data collected during Registry Weeks in 2015 and build upon existing service integration knowledge and practices, with the goal to develop processes which are community owned and delivered.
