Stand with us! Join the campain.
We ask you to stand with us and join the campaign to keep Queensland disability advocacy services running. State funding for Queensland disability advocacy services ends on 30 June 2021. This includes funding for QDN’s systemic advocacy work, as well as funding for independent and citizen advocacy organisations right across the state – from Cairns to the Gold Coast.
We need a commitment from the state government to keep these services running, but so far we haven’t been able to secure a guarantee. That’s why we’ve joined forces with 14 independent individual, citizen and systemic disability advocacy organisations to form the Queensland Disability Advocacy Alliance and today we’ve launched a campaign calling on all Queenslanders to Stand with us! and show your support for independent disability advocacy.
We ask that you:

There has never been a more important time for the voices of people with disability to be heard, particularly after the disturbing reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation we’ve seen emerging from the Disability Royal Commission.
Independent individual, citizen and systemic disability advocacy assists people with disability to protect their rights, including accessing quality services and working to make systemic changes to create fairer laws and policies.
Independent disability advocacy is critical to making our communities more inclusive and without it, many of the 900,000 Queenslanders with disability would be left behind and silenced.
We’ll be updating the campaign website over coming days and weeks. The easiest way to stay up to date with the latest news is to join the campaign today at: www.standwithus.com.au/take-action
