A strong and sustainable Community Services Sector is crucial for providing effective and inclusive human services. Queensland's Community Services Sector supports communities in building skills, finding solutions and promoting social justice. The Sector also plays a vital advocacy role to remedy disadvantage in our society.

Community services have consistently demonstrated enormous benefits to Queenslanders, including enhanced responsiveness, cost effectiveness, flexibility and innovation.

The sector covers a broad range of focus areas in order to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities.
