Our publication scheme describes and categorises information routinely available from the Public Trustee. It has been developed to give the community greater access to information.
By actively supporting the Queensland Governments right to information initiative, we hope to improve the public understanding of the vital role the Public Trustee plays in an accessible justice system and a safe, supportive society. Information is grouped and accessible through seven classes:
- About us
Who we are and what we do
- Our services
The services we offer
- Our finances
What we spend and how we spend it
- Our priorities
What our priorities are and how we are doing
- Our decisions
How we make decisions
- Our policies
Our policies and procedures
- Our lists
Lists and registers
