e-Blast: COVID Conversations: Free webinars for Queenslanders with disability and their supporters

COVID-19 has meant lots of changes and it’s important that everyone can get the information they need about what we can do to be prepared, slow the spread of COVID-19 and get essential services and support.

Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN), in partnership with Health Consumers Queensland (HCQ), are holding a series of free webinars for people with disability and their supporters. We have organised a range of speakers including people with disability, families and carers, colleagues from Victoria, Queensland Department of Health, Queensland Department Communities, Disability Services and Seniors,  Australian Human Rights Commission,  NDIA, NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, and Every Australian Counts.

We know there is lots of news out there and it’s important for people with disability to be up to date with information to be able to plan, stay safe and connected during this pandemic.
