Forensic Disability Service

The Forensic Disability Service (FDS) is a purpose built, medium security facility located at Wacol. The service cares for and supports up to 10 adults with an intellectual disability or cognitive impairment who have been detained to the service on forensic orders (disability).

The service is operated by the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors. The Administrator of the service is appointed by the Director of Forensic Disability under the Forensic Disability Act 2011 and is also responsible for the day-to-day operation of the service.

Although separate and distinct to the FDS, the Director of Forensic Disability works closely with staff at the FDS with the goal of transitioning clients through the programs and services provided by the FDS so that they may safely return to their community with an enhanced quality of life.
