The Forensic Disability Service (FDS) provides purpose-built accommodation for people with an intellectual or cognitive disability who are on a forensic disability order.
Part of the Queensland Government's $228 million Positive Futures program, the FDS is only the second facility of its kind to be built in Australia.
It provides a safe environment for people to receive therapies and learn skills to reduce offending behaviours, maximise their quality of life and reintegrate with their community.
The FDS operates under the provisions of the new Forensic Disability Act 2011. To read the Act visit the Office of the Queensland Parliamentary Counsel website.
