Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Consumer Advisory Group

Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers help to ensure we work with children, young people and families in a culturally safe and appropriate way.

By joining the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Consumer Advisory group you can play a vital role in assisting us to plan, design and deliver better health services for children and young people living in Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

Who can join?

We’re seeking people who:

  • are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
  • are committed to improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children
  • have experience using CHQ services themselves or through their family
  • can join an online meeting via telephone or computer/smartphone (we can help with setting this up).

What’s involved?

Committee members participate in a small orientation and spend approximately two hours per month on committee activities. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff are keen to engage with consumers through this process and will sit alongside the committee for extra support.

Payment for participation will be offered in line with normal CHQ Consumer Engagement procedures.
