True's 50th anniversary celebrations launched

Img True 50th anniversary celebrations launched

In 2022, True Relationships & Reproductive Health will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Family Planning Queensland. Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting a preliminary event to celebrate the valuable contribution and commitment to reproductive and sexual health by founding members and staff, and former Board members and Chairs of the organisation, which began in 1972.

As 2022 will mark a major milestone in the history of Family Planning Queensland, we took the opportunity to honour the people who have made True what it is today - those people who in 1972, built an organisation from the ground up to become the important service delivery and educational organisation known as True today – successfully offering access to relationships and sexual health education and clinical services to all Queenslanders.

The event gave True's Board and senior leaders the opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to the people who initiated this journey. We were lucky to have had Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young PSM, Governor of Queensland, in attendance. Her Excellency gave a compelling speech about the history of the organisation, joined by founding member June Morris and former CEO Kelsey Powell, in recalling memories of the intense need that drove our founders to establish FPQ in the first place.

As True marks 2022 with its 50th Anniversary of service to the community, True invites current and former staff, Board members and clients to be part of the celebrations over the course of the coming year.
