Queensland Advocacy for Inclusion
Advocacy for people with disability
Who we are
We are an independent organisation that advocates for the protection and advancement of the needs, rights and lives of people with disability in Queensland. We are a registered Charity and community legal centre.
What we do
We advocate for systems change through campaigns and submissions directed at changing attitudes, law and policy. We also provide help to individuals through our three advocacy practices.

"QAI put a human touch into our circumstances treating us with respect from the very start. We really felt we had an advocate we could trust and be completely open with and that has been rare in our journey. The knowledge and abilities that our QAI advocate has in putting it all together was priceless to us."
