Queensland Advocacy Incorporated (QAI) thanks the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors (Department) for tabling their review of the Forensic Disability Act 2011 (Qld) (FDA) on 9 October 2018 (FDA Review). We acknowledge that the FDA Review annexes the independent review of the Queensland Forensic Disability Service System prepared for the Department (FDSS Review) by the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science, Swinburne University of Technology and thank the Department for facilitating that
review.

We take this opportunity to respond to the FDA and FDSS review.
