Premier of Queensland: Stop the Cuts to Community Services


Every day another important community service closes because Campbell Newman has cut their funding - leaving more hardworking Queenslanders unemployed.

The community sector provides the social safety net for many Queenslanders – keeping our state fair, equitable and inclusive.

We need to let the government know that we will not accept cuts that leave the most vulnerable in our society without support.

Every cut the government makes to the community sector makes it more likely another Queenslander will fall through the net.

We cannot just stand by and let the government attack the organisations, workers or clients that make up the community sector.

We need to stand up for vital community services, and protect the community sector from the savage cuts Premier Newman has proposed.
