DIANNE WELLINGTON – ADVOCATE 

I’ve worked as a Housing Manager for Tableland Community Housing, a small not-for-profit organisation in Atherton.  Prior to this position, I was a Primary School Teacher in Papua New Guinea and Queensland.

Working in social housing for 12½ years, I was fortunate to be able to advocate and support people with disabilities in the community and assisting them to secure community services including long term safe and affordable housing and referrals to local support networks.   I was also involved in increasing the housing stock to include universal design features.
