Human Rights Resources
The Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) came into effect on 1 January 2020 and requires the consideration of an individual’s human rights in the delivery of government services. This includes public services delivered by non-government providers.
QCOSS partnered with the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy (DCHDE) and the housing and homelessness sector during 2021 to build understanding of the Act, increase confidence to work compatibly with the Act, and support the sector to use the Act for person-centred service delivery.
Informed by the work of the project, we’ve compiled this suite of handy resources to help you incorporate the Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) into your policies, procedures and everyday service delivery.
