QDN is a Queensland wide network of people with disability, for people with disability.
We provide a pathway for people with disability to have a say in the issues that affect their lives – to have a voice.
Our current priorities are:
Promote and maintain strong vibrant networks throughout Queensland.
Facilitate the exchange of accessible information and lived experiences.
Influence governments and others to bring about full and equal participation and citizenship.
Grow an effective, sustainable, accountable organisation that reflects our values.
Our members, through surveys and state wide gatherings, have identified key issues as our immediate priorities. These drive our work, and help us to decide where to place our resources and direct our energy.
The hot issues for our members are:
Local Support Groups are group of Queenslanders with various disabilities supporting each other to build capacity to achieve social and economic participation in their communities and to live the life they choose.
A key part of the Groups' work is helping people get ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which will start in Queensland from 1 July 2016.
Local Support Groups are supported by QDN in its role as a Disability Support Organisation, funded through the National Disability Insurance Agency.
Ready to go is QDN’s project for Queenslanders with intellectual or learning disability to get ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
The project is an NDIS Participant Readiness activity funded by Department of Communities, Disability and Child Safety
The Network seeks to be a strong voice on issues impacting on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability, their families, carers and communities.
QDN believes in and celebrates the power of peer leadership in affecting change for people with disability. We have established a peer development program which focuses on developing leadership and mentoring skills, group facilitation and knowledge.
