Health services in Queensland


We have been a trusted voice for Queenslanders for over 60 years. We are known by political parties and Government officials as an independent source of knowledge and ideas around issues affecting older people.

One of the ways we have been able to do this is by engaging with and advocating for the diverse voices of older Queenslanders and their communities. Your contribution is a vital part of that.

Your voice matters! All the comments, concerns, and suggestions gathered through the submissions portal or via email will be collected and analysed to help inform the Health systems submission to Queensland Parliament.

Your contribution may also assist us in assessing future priorities and shaping future recommendations to local and state government. We will look at your contributions alongside all our other data to make sure we are as informed as we can be about the issues.

If something is not included in our final submission, it will still be used to inform our ongoing advocacy work with the Queensland Government.

We use a range of sources to inform our submissions to Queensland Parliament. They include the things you have told us during our ongoing consultations, surveys, and in feedback on our programs. We also draw on research evidence, what we hear through collaborative work with other community organisations and the many committees, forums, and advisory groups we attend as well as policy and practice developments around Australia and the world to help us stay on top of the latest ideas.

No. We work with all representatives and parties to promote positive outcomes for Queenslanders. We are not affiliated with any political party.
