‘My Disability Matters’ QDN 2020 State Election Policy Platform

There are 900,000 Queenslanders living with disability. Alongside our network of supporters, from family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, support workers or the staff at the local footy club, we have connections in every corner of our communities. We believe that Queenslanders with disability need to be empowered active and valued citizens, fully included in the economic, social, civic, and cultural life of Queensland.

Queenslanders with Disability Networks (QDN) is pleased to announce its 2020 Queensland State Election Policy Platform ‘Disability Matters’.

QDN’s platform focuses on mainstream services Queenslanders, including those with disability, use every day, including health, housing, transport, education, and employment. QDN calls on the next Queensland Government to deliver and fund accessible, affordable and quality mainstream services for people with disability. Only then can we create communities where Queenslanders with disability are included and celebrated for their contributions to the economic, social, civic and cultural life of our wonderful state.
