The Queensland Community Alliance launched two state-wide campaigns at the Founding Assembly.
The Care Campaign is looking for solutions to the quality and delivery of aged care, mental health care, disability care and the transition for people to the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme).
You can join the Care Campaign team and play an active role, share the campaign with your community, share your personal story or simply stay informed with what's happening.
The Employment & Training Campaign wants an end to worker exploitation, particularly for vulnerable workers, and affordable and high quality vocational training for all.
You can join the Employment & Training team and play an active role, share the campaign with your community, share your personal story or simply stay informed with what's happening.
In late 2017 we held an 'all in' Campaign Action Planning event to work on the next steps with both campaigns.
