MEMBERSHIP: Associate Member
The Ethnic Communities Council of Qld works alongside culturally diverse communities through providing support and education programs, and through seeking equity around access to services.
ECCQ supports social and economic participation for all Queenslanders through strengthening community associations, delivering leadership training, creating employment pathways and raising awareness of the benefits of cultural diversity. ECCQ participates in policy submissions and publications on its community work.
Through its health programs, ECCQ provides access to health information and services that are culturally appropriate, and relevant to all peoples’ needs.
ECCQ began to advocate for aged care services for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in the mid-1980s and in 1988 opened the first residential care facility focused on cultural inclusiveness. In 1989, ECCQ began to deliver community care packages to assist older people from culturally diverse backgrounds to stay in their homes for as long as possible.
