The Voice of Queenslanders with Disability: Information Pack
Griffith University, Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) and the Queensland Government are launching a new initiative, The Voice of Queenslanders with Disability.
Queensland's Disability Plan 2022-2027: Together, a better Queensland, will help to achieve Australia's Disability Strategy across the state, in a way that recognises Queensland's unique peoples, regions and diversity.
Queensland's Disability Plan has seven outcome areas:
The Voice of Queenslanders with Disability will find out how these areas are changing over time. The full information pack below has in-depth insights that highlight some of what is already known about: (1) working and earning money, (2) inclusive homes and communities, and (3) health and wellbeing, three important areas that contribute to quality of life for people with disability.
Please download the full information pack or individual information areas (in either pdf or accessible word versions) to consider how you, your organisation and community can help make Queensland inclusive, accessible and welcoming for people with disability and their familiies and carers.

Register to share your story with The Voice of Queenslanders with Disability
It is important for all of us to live, work, learn, and play in a Queensland that is accessible, welcoming, and inclusive for people with disability and their family/carers. Griffith University, Queenslanders with Disability Network, and the Queensland Government are using innovative, digital techniques to uncover how inclusive, accessible, and welcoming it is for people with disability living in Queensland. The new 'Voice of Queenslanders with Disability' annual report will provide an in-depth understanding of people's experiences, successes and challenges in alignment with Queensland's Disability Plan (2022-2027): Together, a better Queensland.
Starting on January 31, 2023, and continuing annually, we will be launching a number of different ways for you to share your stories and have your say, including online questionnaires, interviews, and focus groups.
Who can share their stories?
We are particularly interested in hearing from:
- People with disability
- Families and carers of people with disability
- Disability service providers
- Peak and advocacy organisations relating to disability
