Queensland Community Impact Awards

On Thursday, 2 November, more than 350 Queensland community service sector representatives gathered at Brisbane City Hall to recognise and celebrate our community heroes for the 2023 Queensland Community Impact Awards.

We were humbled to see so many people from all corners of the sector acknowledge their peers’ phenomenal contributions.

An enormous thank you to Her Excellency, the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young AC PSM for joining in the celebrations, and to our wonderful MC, Rebecca Levingston for her compassion and charisma. Thanks to FX Band for their energetic performances.

Thank you to everyone who came from near and far, to those who cheered and to those who danced – we can’t wait to see you next year!
