Queensland Shelter Incorporated (Q Shelter) was founded over thirty years ago by concerned housing groups who were determined to see more social and affordable housing for those who need it, more rights for those in housing, and working with government to deliver better housing policy.

As an incorporated association, we operate in line with our constitution and are supported by a broad membership base that includes passionate individual members, as well as for-profit and community organisations.

Today, Q Shelter continues to provide an independent and impartial voice on behalf of the housing and homelessness sector, as well as for those who don’t have access to secure and affordable housing. We also work to strengthen the capacity of community housing providers and specialist homelessness services because we know that stronger organisations deliver better outcomes for those in need.

We strongly believe in not only being the voice of the sector; but also an industry developer, capacity builder, and corporate support. We continue our purpose of promoting public debate on policy that provides the best possible solutions to homelessness and affordable housing for people who are on low incomes and vulnerable to housing stress.

We aim to strengthen the capacity and capability of the sector by providing a range of training, resources, and services.

Queensland Shelter is an incorporated association and registered charity.
