A civil society statement of concern regarding the media and Mr Storrar
QCOSS is conducting a survey on electricity and gas issues and we'd love to get your feedback. The aim of the survey is to find out more about your experiences in the community sector and those of your clients in relation to electricity and gas bills.
As part of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month this May, we are featuring two member organisations who shared in $150,000 of Queensland Government funding to stage community events to ‘raise awareness and send a clear message that domestic and family violence will not be tolerated.’ This week’s member organisation is Communify Qld in northern Brisbane.
After an initial meeting at the end of February 2016 with a broad range of local stakeholders from the NDIA, Queensland Department Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, Department of Housing and Public Works, Community Connections, Cootharinga, Commonwealth Department of Social Services, and others it was agreed that the Townsville community is well placed to inform and shape the NDIS transition. A meeting with Minister O’Rourke soon after confirmed this project would be a welcome addition to the transition efforts in Townsville.
