Milne Street Carpark – Spring Hill

Each year Q Shelter joins local housing, homelessness, and community partners to host an event in the Lady Bowen Precinct in Spring Hill. The aim is to connect local Spring Hill residents and various support services in order to create a sense of inclusiveness and community spirit.  This event will be held to acknowledge anti-poverty week, connect local residents with a range of community services and to break social isolation by arranging a low-key welcoming event. For the first time, Queenslanders with Disability Network will be at this event to help people become aware of their eligibility for the NDIS.
