Learning Exchange Report
In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, Q Shelter launched a series of Learning Exchange teleconferences to:
- Explore and document issues, needs, trends and questions; and
- Facilitate discussion as the sector rapidly adapted to the emerging situation.
Q Shelter also offered regional COVID-19 Learning Exchange meetings to provide place-focussed opportunities to raise issues and trouble-shoot solutions. Tenants and service users were also invited to raise issues and engage in dialogue about COVID-19 related matters through a separate weekly teleconference.
Q Shelter published a report that highlighted key themes and learnings from this engagement, and provided this update to the Queensland Department of Housing and Public Works (DHPW).
