Your Voice is an opportunity to have your say on matters that affect your life and the lives of people with disability across Queensland. QDN regularly seeks feedback from members and people with disability on current issues and consultations focused on issues affecting people with disability. Current consultations are listed below for your feedback. Systemic Advocacy QDN undertakes a range of strategic systemic advocacy and policy work to influence and bring about change on key issues that are important to people with disability. QDN engages with members and allies to inform our position across key areas. As a systemic advocacy organisation, we aim to raise awareness of these issues and ensure the collective voice of people with disability is considered. Consultation with our members and the development of policy submissions is just one way QDN promotes the voice of people with disability at a systemic level. QDN is not funded to deliver independent individual advocacy as part of its overall ‘day-to-day’ work. Organisations that are funded to undertake independent individual advocacy can be found here, along with their contact details. As a state-wide network of people with disability, QDN provides a collective voice to inform policy makers about what is important to them and how decisions might affect people with disability. QDN policy and positions are informed by consultations, forums and member feedback.
