The Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS) has announced the next stage of the QCOSS Movement for change – a series of Changing Lives, Changing Communities events in 13 locations across Queensland. These events will build on the knowledge gained and actions developed on the second day of the QCOSS State Conference - Movement for change, held in Brisbane in May.
Continuing the momentum of Movement for change and QCOSS Pulse conversations, they will kick off these events in Fraser Coast and Townsville. Additional events will be announced in the coming weeks.
QCOSS invites you to join them at a location near you for a free, two-day event to create a community where everyone contributes, matters and belongs.
During this event QCOSS will host a Community Marketplace to bring together people, service providers and businesses to connect, network, discover and learn about what is available in their community. The Marketplace will be an opportunity for government agencies, providers and businesses to showcase their inclusive services and products. Social enterprises are welcome to participate.
The Marketplace will be held on the first day of each two-day event, from 4:00 to 6:00pm. All event participants will be invited and an invitation will be extended more broadly throughout the community.
If you are a provider, service or business and would like to be a part of the Marketplace, you can register your interest here
As funded supports for people with disability increase due to the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) and people are looking for services, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Places are limited so register soon to secure your spot.
The events are supported by their partners: Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN); Townsville City Council; Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland (ADCQ); Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) and Energy Queensland.
