QDeNgage are seeking people with disability living in North Queensland to participate in a focus group. The purpose of this group is to give feedback on a communication strategy that is being developed by consultancy group, The Social Deck.

The Social Deck have been funded by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women to develop a communication and engagement strategy to help raise awareness and understanding of domestic and family violence in regard to people with disability. They have been consulting with people with disability, family and carers, and representatives of supports and services on this draft strategy.

The Social Deck would like to hear feedback from people with disability in North Queensland on some of their key messages and the ways they are looking to share these messages.

You do not have to have experienced domestic or family violence to be part of this consultation. This consultation is open to all QDN members from all genders.

Counselling support will be available following the consultation, if required.
