Queensland Social Cohesion Implementation Committee

In June 2016, the Queensland Government established the Queensland Social Cohesion Implementation Committee as a step towards enhancing social cohesion in our communities.

The Committee has developed an action plan, with priorities and related strategies that:

  • promote the benefits of diversity in Queensland
  • strengthen community cohesion and resilience
  • reduce marginalisation
  • address anti-social behaviour and behaviour that may lead to violence or physical harm to others.

The Committee reports to the Queensland Security Cabinet Committee through the Premier and Minister for the Arts and the Minister for Employment and Industrial Relations, Minister for Racing and Minister for Multicultural Affairs.
