As we move closer to preparing for the Act’s implementation, it is now time for PeakCare Members to give close and careful consideration to how the legislation will impact ways in which you frame, deliver and are held to account for the services you provide. PeakCare congratulates all who have been involved in driving and supporting the Human Rights Act for Queensland Campaign and commends the Honourable Yvette D’Ath, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice for her role in championing the legislation.
