Mental Health Demonstration Project

The Mental Health Demonstration Project tested an integrated housing, mental health and psycho-social support model designed to address gaps in the current service system supporting social housing tenants with mental illness or related complex needs.  

The two-year project, jointly funded by Queensland Health and the Department of Housing and Public Works operated in the Chermside and Fortitude Valley Housing Service Centre catchment areas until December 2017.

The project assisted tenants with a mental illness to sustain their tenancy, address a range of mental and physical health issues, connect them to support services and provide holistic support.  

The benefits of the project include increased staff awareness, the development of supportive and proactive tenancy management approaches, and enhanced connections with community managed mental health services through enduring partnerships. These improvements help the two Housing Service Centres continue to deliver good practice approaches to supporting people with mental ill health and related complex needs.  

The University of Queensland’s Institute for Social Science Research evaluated the project.

Australian South Sea Islander Community Survey

The The Queensland Australian South Sea Islander Community Survey 2014 results have been released.

In 2013, the Queensland Government and members of the Queenslander Australian South Sea Islander community developed an attitudinal survey to gain and share current data on the views, issues and priorities of this unique Queensland community.

The survey findings are a public resource aimed at increasing community, government and other stakeholders’ awareness of the current issues and aspirations of the Australian South Sea Islander community.

Logan tenant survey

The Building housing options—Understanding the housing aspirations of public housing tenants aged over 55 years in Logan report (PDF, 10 MB) has now been released.

The department partnered with Brisbane Housing Company and Churches of Christ in Queensland to survey 151 senior tenants on their housing views.

The survey results provided valuable insights into what seniors want from their housing, what their future needs will be and how we can better meet those needs.

The researchers spent time  to understand the needs and challenges of older residents  and their feedback will inform future work for Better Neighbourhoods.

Digital Economy Fast Forward Report

In 2015, we engaged CSIRO's Data61 to identify key technology trends and several plausible marketplace scenarios that may shape future demand for, and delivery of, Queensland Government services out to year 2025. The Fast Forward Report identifies four key scenarios relating to Queensland's digital marketplace for public services in the year 2025.The report is intended to support both Queensland Government agencies and the ICT/digital industry to identify, select and implement optimal strategies to achieve a better future.
