In the spirit of reconciliation, CheckUP acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.

CheckUP’s final QPHCN event for the year coincided with Disability Action Week (25 Nov -2 Dec), which recognises the contributions people with disability make to our lives, families, workplaces, communities and to Queensland’s economy. The 2023 Disability Action Week theme, ‘Access ignites: It’s good business’ highlights the talents, qualifications, skills and abilities people with disability bring to Queensland business.
The QPHCN event showcased an exciting lineup of speakers, including Dr Dinesh Palipana OAM, Brent Phillips, Emma Lynam, Cody Skinner and CheckUP’s Amanda Frier; a group of outstanding disability sector leaders, who each shared insights about accessibility, inclusion and purpose.
