About the Community Services Industry

The community services sector captures many industries including, disability support services, child safety and counselling.

The community services sector is a growing industry and at least 20,000 new jobs are expected to be created in Queensland by 2025. These positions will be driven by population growth and an increase in ageing residents. Community service professionals perform an extremely important role in Australian communities, caring for and promoting the safety and wellbeing of children, people with a disability and the elderly.
