The Get Involved Website
Institution: The Department of Communities, the Queensland Governments
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 2003
Summary: As part of its decision-making process, the Queensland Government wants to hear the many different views of Queenslanders. The Get involved website is about connecting Queenslanders with their government. It allows the citizens to contribute, in a fast, easy and secure way, to government decisions that may affect their life and community.

There are four key sections of the Get involved site:

  • Be informed Find out about democracy and how the Queensland Government works. This section helps citizens access information about the Queensland Parliament, government departments, legislation and voting in Queensland. the ConsultQld the direct link to the government about key issues that are being considered. Give us your opinion by taking part in an open public consultation or find out about the outcomes of public consultations that have recently closed.
  • Get involved Contribute ideas to Queensland Government policy and decision-making. Take advantage of opportunities to interact with the government and be involved in the community. Log on to ConsultQld and tell the government what citizens think right now about certain issues raised by government that are important to the citizens and the state.
  • Stay connected Keep in touch with the community and the Queensland Government. Learn about the innovative things that Queenslanders are doing as active citizens.
  • Share your knowledge Build the community’s engagement skills with information, tools and resources specifically developed for those involved in community engagement within government agencies, Queensland's business sector and the community.

The Get involved website can also be accessed through the Queensland Government Gateway (the 'gateway' to information about all state government services) and the website of the Department of Communities (which details the functions of its various divisions and units). In addition, this website refers to information on the websites of the Premier and the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.

Impact:


By listening and working with the community, the Queensland government expects to tap into diverse opinions and potential solutions. This improves the quality of government decisions and allows individuals and communities to share their views with the government on issues that may affect them and play a real role in shaping government policies, programs and services. The Community engagement ensures that relationships are established in the local community to benefit current and future projects.
