    I originally sent this email to Devett Kennedy. It’s an enquiry about training offered by QCA. Please forward my enquiry as appropriate.


    Hello Devett.


    I heard you speak about QCA at the Brisbane Amnesty office in May.

    Mark Copland had already mentioned QCA to me some time ago. So I told him about your talk and my interest in doing the training offered.


    We came up with this list of people and organisations we thought might be interested. [See attached.]

    I remembered that training could involve two days – I may have remembered wrongly. That might be too much of a commitment for many of the people on the list.


    Would you be able to email an outline of the training you offer so we could approach the people on the list?


    Many thanks

    Regards,

    Phil Armit

    Good afternoon to the QLD Community Alliance,


    I write to you on behalf of Spinal Home Help. We are a small nonprofit organisation based in Moorooka, Brisbane – we recieve no government funding and our work centres around peer support, community support and information and referral services for people with spinal injury and their loved ones. All our workers are people with spinal injury and family, who volunteer their time to support others.


    At the moment, our organisation is also working with the state government to build a support and accommodation centre for people with spinal cord injury (SCI) and their families in Queensland. It will offer transitional, short term and respite/holiday accommodation for patients and family as well as a host of support, information and referral services, as well as programs and workshops.

    We are seeking funding and supporters for this project, so that we can make it a reality and be able to better support people with SCI and their loved ones across the state; the centre will not only benefit the people recuperating from their injury in the PA Hospital, where Queensland’s only spinal injuries unit is, but will especially help rural and regional families who struggle with distance and extra cost.

    This project fits in very well with your current mental health care campaign for better mental health support for people with disability and those accessing aged care support, and it would be great to talk about it with you further.


    I just wondered if you had time to arrange a meeting with us, so that we can discuss further about our project and the opportunity for Spinal Home Help and the QLD Community Alliance to collaborate and make this much-needed support centre a reality.


    If you’d like to know more about our work you can visit our website at www.spinalhomehelp.com.au.


    I look forward to hearing from you.

    John, The recommendations are now on the website, thanks for your suggestion. Matthew, we have two leadership structures.


    Matthew, the Directors of our Board are two union, two faith and two community representatives, and are published in our annual reports which you will find in about us. However, our Leaders Council is our larger deliberative body that decides on strategy and committments, and it is made up of a representative of every partner organisation. These were the people you saw on stage at the beginnning and end of the Founding Assembly.

    I attended the Founding Assembly and would like to follow up on one aspect. There were a number of recommendations put forward by the working parties but I cannot see these here. Am I not looking in the right place? Could these be published, if not already, so the general direction of the activities is known. I would like to engage my local MPs and this would be a good place to start. Thank you.

    Hi. The Alliance asked politicians to commit to certain promises. I want to ask that the alliance ask providers of aged care who are on the alliance, that they will promise to fight for:

    1. Safe nurse:resident ratios as determined by research and endorsed by QNMU (also an Alliance member).

    2. Fair and equitable wages for Nurses and AINs commensurate with hospital nurses.

    3. Significantly reduce the number of untrained workers in aged care and employ more EENs.

    4. Do not allow non-nurses with medication endorsement to give ANY medications to residents.

    5. Stamp out bullying of staff, residents and family members.


    Thank you.

    The parking should prioritize patients and shift-workers who need to drive.

    Previous message:


    I wonder if they have explored cleaner and more sustainable travel options other than just cheaper parking – see article below.


    Of course there needs to be parking for the sick and disabled but I am sure a lot of able-bodied people are driving who don’t really need to.


    After all we would have less respiratory complaints and therefore less demand for hospital care if less people drove!


    Protesters rally over rising costs


    23 Nov 2016 • Northside Chronicle,


    NORTHSIDE residents, tired of inflated hospital parking prices, stepped out in protest at the weekend, calling on Metro Parking Management to meet with them. Queensland Community Alliance organiser Dave Copeman said more than 200 people from the Kenmore/ Chermside Uniting Church, Stafford Anglican Parish, Queensland Nurses Union, Together, Queensland African Community Council and Stafford Catholic Parish met last Thursday to discuss community concerns.
