Abstract

[Extract] FNQ Connect was created in response to a groundswell of interest and concern from FNQ people with lived experience of disability, their families and communities, together with stakeholders responsible for supporting them. They expressed an urgent need for service reform: current supply of services is outweighed by needs and is well below national standards; inaccuracies in national data conceal these inequities. Existing government, non-government and private services are largely fragmented; opportunities created by NDIS have added another layer of fragmentation. At the same time, demand for services is relentlessly increasing. To ensure quitable investment in services and continuity of care for the people of FNQ, accurate data and integration of services, were required.
