Attend a Forum

The Council hosts regular meetings and forums with representatives from the specialist homelessness sector and beyond. Our forums are an opportunity to share knowledge, feedback and work together to create better outcomes for clients and ultimately work towards achieving a shared vision for the future in which no one in Queensland is without a safe and secure home.

CHPQ Monthly SHS Practice Forum

The SHS Practice Forum allows frontline staff across Queensland to provide expert advice and guidance to service delivery and an opportunity to escalate matters that require a system response.

The Forum will explore the evidence base and theoretical frameworks that will inform shared principles and standards for the specialist homeless services. It will support continuious improvement to enable a consistent, inclusive, safe and accountable service design and delivery.

CHPQ Monthly SHS Reference Committee

The Reference Committee is comprised of senior-level represntations from a broad cross-section of the SHS sector and other relevant key stakeholders. The Committee identifies systemic issues, gaps and needs, and where appropriate, advocates as a network for these to be addressed. It is an opportunity to define and rethink how services are delivered to achieving improved outcome to service users.
