Driving Inclusive Change

Build a more inclusive and accessible community with us!

As Queensland’s largest NDIS LAC Partner in the Community, we have been working alongside communities toward sustainable change that ensures people with disability are leading conversations and driving the inclusive changes they need and want to see to achieve their goals.

Our work with local councils and public sector agencies, business and industry, community groups and clubs is making sure inclusion is on the agenda and that people with disability have a seat at the table.
