Housing strategy

The Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027 is a 10-year framework driving key reforms and targeted investment across the entire housing continuum.

The strategy redefines how the Queensland Government will deliver housing to support urban renewal, generate new jobs, provide affordable housing and drive innovative housing design that responds to contemporary housing needs.

Human Services Quality Framework

The Human Services Quality Framework (HSQF) is a system for assessing and promoting improvement in the quality of human services.

The HSQF applies to a range of human service providers delivering services in Queensland including:

  • organisations funded to deliver human services under service agreements, or other specified arrangements, with the following participating Queensland Government departments:
    • Department of Youth Justice, Employment, Small Business and Training (DYJESBT)
    • Department of Housing (DOH)
    • Department of Treaty, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Communities and the Arts (DTATSIPCA)
    • Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG)
    • Department of Child Safety, Seniors and Disability Services (DCSSDS)
  • organisations funded to deliver child protection placement services in-scope of licensing under an Individualised Placement and Support Agreement (IPSA) with DCYJMA
  • organisations funded by Queensland Health that have been advised by Queensland Health that they can use HSQF to meet quality requirements.

The Human Services Quality Framework (PDF, 5.5MB) describes how HSQF applies to in-scope organisations and services.

The HSQF is administered by the Department of Child Safety, Seniors and Disability Services (DCSSDS) for participating Queensland Government departments.
