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.
A person’s health is crucial to their complete physical, mental and social well-being.
At ECCQ we believe that all people should have access to health information and services that are culturally appropriate, and relevant to their needs.
ECCQ began to advocate for aged care services for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in the mid-1980s.
In 1988, ECCQ 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.
