As a state-wide peak body, ECCQ works on state level policy issues. This includes policy research and advocacy to the Queensland State Government, and other community and business stakeholders. Our focus is on promoting the benefits of cultural diversity.
We work directly with people from established and new migrant and refugee communities, and the organisations that support them. It is important that we understand the unique needs of these groups, and can identify issues as soon as they emerge.
Our policy program aims to improve the legislation, policies, practices, resource allocation and attitudes that affect the well-being of culturally and linguistically diverse communities across the whole of Queensland.
We also contribute to policy and debate on a national level through our affiliation with the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia.
