The Department of Seniors,Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnershipsis focused on creating thriving Queensland communities where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can participate, are included and resilient, and enjoy high levels of social and economic well-being. This vision drives the development of our initiatives and provides the focus we need to create positive changes in the lives of Queensland’s most vulnerable people. We cannot realise this vision alone and will continue working with communities, sector partners and other government agencies to develop solutions based on the different needs and aspirations of Queensland communities.
The Queensland Communities Hub, or the QC Hub as we like to call it, is a key tool that enables us to connect directly with community members across all regions in Queensland.
The QC Hub is a secure online space where you can share your views and ideas about the topics that matter to you. On a regular basis we will post new consultation pages here that will seek your views, input and ideas.
We want to hear what you have to say because when you contribute your ideas and feedback, our department makes decisions and deliver services that are more effective and better at responding to the needs of our communities.Engaging with our communities enhances our decision making and our service delivery by bringing your voice into the issues that are relevant to you.
It is through community engagement and collaboration we will continue the state’s excellent progress in creating Queensland communities that thrive and prosper.
