Cairns and Far North Queensland has four exciting community initiatives taking place across the region over 2021/2022.

Fifteen Managers and Allied Health Professionals at Apunipuma Cape York Council will complete a TeleHealth Administration Skill Set to help make its NDIS services more accessible to people living in regional and remote communities across the Cape York Peninsula.
