Why CQID can help

CQID – Central Queensland Indigenous Development is a community controlled organisation dedicated to supporting the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We provide services across Central Queensland and surrounds. Around 95 percent of our staff are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, so we have deep connections with our community.

We are proud of our culture.

No shame in asking for help

We are here to help you and your family, and we all need help at times.

There is no shame in asking for help, one of our friendly staff are happy to yarn with you about services you can access. Our service is confidential and we will always seek your permission before we share any information with other services.

The only time we need to breach confidentiality is if your or other’s safety is at risk.
