Accommodation Support and Respite Services (AS&RS)

Our department is a registered service provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We deliver our services through our Accommodation Support and Respite Services (AS&RS) service.

As the NDIS is gradually phased in, AS&RS service access arrangements will change. Prior to a location transitioning, access to AS&RS will be in accordance with existing Service Access arrangements.

Once a location transitions and you enter the NDIS, you will be able to access our service by contacting us directly or nominating us as your preferred provider to your Local Area Coordinator or Planner.

The NDIS will be phased in in Queensland between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2019. You can enter your suburb or postcode to find out when your area will transition.

Existing clients of AS&RS

We are committed to supporting our existing clients.

If you currently receive a service from AS&RS you can choose to continue receiving your support from us either as a participant of the NDIS or, if you are not eligible for the NDIS due to your age, under the Commonwealth Government's Continuity of Support Programme.

New to AS&RS

You do not need to be an existing client to use our service.

If you are a participant under the NDIS and want to consider us as your service provider you can contact us to discuss your support requirements.
