You are invited to a fantastic two day event coming up in Toowoomba on the 10th and & 11th of October. Everyone in the Toowoomba community is welcome to come along to this free forum. 

Bring a friend, bring a colleague. Changing Lives, Changing Communities - Toowoomba is your opportunity to be part of a movement for change towards an inclusive Toowoomba by 2030.

Thursday 11 October:       9:00am to 4:00pm

Venue: City Golf Club, 254 South Street, Toowoomba

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is here and brings opportunities to build and shape inclusive, thriving communities. Changing Lives, Changing Communities - Toowoomba is about bringing together all parts of the community to co-create solutions to ensure people with disability are included in their community, and can access what they need like a place to call home, good health, transport, education, and a job. 

This event will focus on what we have achieved and what more we can do together.
 
During the two days we will discuss the stories we want to tell in our communities and how they can change the outcomes for people with disability and people everywhere. Then we will work through a process to create the movement for change.
 
This will be a hands-on session, drawing from the strength and wisdom in the room, to develop a vision and key actions for change.

At the end of day one (between 4pm – 6pm), there will be a Community Marketplace where mainstream and community providers will be invited to showcase what they do and their inclusive services.  We also welcome any social enterprises to be part of this exciting marketplace! Register for the marketplace here. Remember to also register for the event, as well as the marketplace, if you plan to come along and set up a stall.

QCOSS, Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) and the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland (ADCQ) are working together to drive social change! We want all people in Queensland to enjoy a high quality of life and have access to opportunities that make this possible – quality education, accessible and affordable housing, and transport, meaningful employment, quality health and a thriving, connected community.
 
Changing Lives, Changing Communities – Toowoomba is funded through Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) National Readiness Grants - National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) –  a partnership between QDN, QCOSS and ADCQ and supported by Toowoomba Regional Council.
