The Queensland Government has launched the Communities 2032 Strategy and Action Plan 2022 – 2025. This is a long-term, whole-of-government plan to build the communities that will support all Queenslanders to live their best lives.

The Queensland Communities 2032 Strategy and Action Plan is “Queensland’s first long-term, holistic strategy for our communities”.

The strategy provides a roadmap of key priorities for Queenslanders and features HBNC.

Collective Impact Coordinator for HBNC, Rowena Allen, had a number of her photographs published in the State strategy document.

Tara Duerkop, featured in the document at the HBNC Family Fun Day, works as a Community Navigator for HBNC. This program provides support and advice for community members struggling to find the help they need to navigate through the complex social systems and enable them to find employment.

Tara has been nick-named the Community Angel and was recently nominated as a finalist in the local Australia Day Awards. HBNC was also honoured to receive the award for Organisation of the Year at the Fraser Coast Australia Day Awards.

CEO of HBNC, Tanya Stevenson, said it was exciting to be featured in the strategy document, and to see the plans laid out.

“It is wonderful see that the State plan is inclusive of all regions throughout Queensland. Strong communities are essential to our economic prosperity, wellbeing and future opportunities," Tanya said.
