The Queensland social service sector incorporates a range of service delivery, community development, social justice, and advocacy organisations operating across a range of areas, including but not limited to: health, housing, employment, disability, aged care, services for children and young people, Indigenous affairs and multicultural affairs. Inclusion in the sector is less about the specific service being provided and more about commitment to a shared vision and a set of values. Organisations which are not-for-profit, community based and have a shared vision and central values are considered to be part of the social service sector.

The social service sector provides the community with services that meet a broad range of needs. The delivery of services aims to promote physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Groups in the community that are marginalised or disadvantaged, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) families and people with a disability, are supported by government and non-government providers of community services.

This section contains details on the social service sector in Queensland, including reform processes, networks, research and reports.
