Human rights are basic entitlements that belong to everyone regardless of your background, what you look like, what you think, what you believe or any other status or characteristic.

The Human Rights Act 2019 protects the human rights of every person in Queensland when they interact with the government, police, public hospitals, public schools and other organisations doing public work.

Quilpie Shire Council has obligations under the Human Rights Act 2019, to act and make decisions in a way that is compatible with human rights and to give human rights proper consideration when making decisions.
