Queensland NDIS Transition Advisory Group (QTAG) - Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services (Queensland Government)

Queensland NDIS Transition Advisory Group (QTAG)

The Queensland NDIS Transition Advisory Group (QTAG) has been established to provide advice to the Minister for Disability Services, Coralee O'Rourke, on Queensland’s transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The QTAG will be a key source of advice to ensure the voices of the sector representatives, people with disability and their families and carers are heard. The QTAG is made up of:

  • members of organisations that represent people with disability and carers;
  • providers of specialist disability services and/or networks of such providers, with representation of small, medium and large providers; and
  • members of disability peak bodies.

Members were appointed by Minister O'Rourke on 5 May 2015. Members were invited based on their knowledge, experience and representation in the disability sector, as well as their ability to access a range of networks.
