We had:

Davina Hickling, Chair of the Cairns Alliance of Social Services – CASS talking about how they are setting the benchmark for strong regional advocacy with the Champion Equality Webinar on Thursday 15th October. All local State election candidates have been invited to respond to the social services’ sector concerns of what the overall economic recovery for our region looks like and how is the affordable housing deficit going to be addressed preventing more individuals and families falling into poverty. Champion Equality Webinar has limited spaces and will be live streamed on their Facebook page from 3pm, Thursday 15th, October.
