We bring Queensland perspectives, capability and cultural expertise to housing.

About Housing Queensland

Housing Queensland was formally established in May 2021. We are a non-government, leadership and membership organisation and derive our functions and powers from our constitution and various pieces of legislation.

Our duty is to work together with members and partners to eliminate the disparities in housing experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland. We achieve this through advocacy, advice, support, partnerships and research.

Housing Queensland provides certain services to our members and also government. Additionally, we monitor Australian and international housing policy for solutions to address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing inequalities and challenges in Queensland.

Our Role

The role and functions of Housing Queensland are underpinned by our constitution and various pieces of legislation. Our organisation is a registered Australian company limited by guarantee, established under the Corporations Act 2001, which gives it specific powers and obligations. We are also a registered charity and are regulated by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

Our constitution was developed in 2021 to govern us and guide our purpose. Our constitution describes our role. In broad terms it is to:

  • act as the peak body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing in Queensland
  • strengthen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community housing providers and Indigenous Councils in Queensland so that they can provide greater benefit to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities; and
  • support government and non-government partners to deliver quality housing and homelessness services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We achieve our purpose through advocacy, advice, support, partnerships and research.

Our Values

The Housing Queensland core values are a set of guiding principles and fundamental beliefs that will help us to successfully deliver objectives and priorities.

They include:

  • Honesty and integrity govern our activities
  • Commitments made will be fulfilled; and
  • Everyone will be treated with dignity and respect.
