NCQ, Picabeen Community Centre, Logan East Community Neighbourhood Centre, St. David’s Neighbourhood Centre and Mt Gravatt Community Centre gave briefings to the Parliamentary Inquiry into Loneliness and Social Isolation in September. Regional Public Hearings have also occurred with Laidley Community Centre, Chinchilla Community Centre, Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre, Gympie Community Place and Nambour Community Centre.

The committee was keen to learn more about Neighbourhood and Community centres and the role they play in addressing loneliness and isolation across the state. This followed on from the 53 submissions that Neighbourhood Centres submitted to the Inquiry.
