Everyone working together to get stuff done is the best way to help communities recover from natural disasters.
Since the 2019 North Queensland flood, the Agency has worked with local, state and commonwealth government bodies, businesses and community members to support ongoing recovery and plan for a strong and resilient future.
It’s how the ‘locally-led, locally understood and locally implemented’ long-term recovery strategy came into being, and how we’ll continue working alongside the affected communities over the coming years.
The Western Queensland Primary Health Network (WQPHN) is an important partner – we have a shared aim of fostering connected and cohesive communities and ensuring relevant mental health and wellbeing services are available when and where they’re needed.
Coordinator-General Shane Stone AC QC recently caught up with WQPHN CEO Stuart Gordon to reflect on the past 18 months since the flood, and plans for the road ahead.
