Organisational Information

MontroseAccess has been providing therapy and respite support since 1933 for children and young adults with a physical disability. We currently have over 700 service users across Queensland. MontroseAccess is a community-based service with the vision of inspiring quality lives and assisting service users to achieve their maximum individual potential for participation in their community.

We have extensive experience in providing therapy support (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, social work), recreation activities and respite for our service users in their home, educational setting and community. We work within a person-centred framework which provides a solid foundation for us to work alongside you to assist you in meeting your goals for your life.

Host Provider Model

MontroseAccess' Your Life Your Choice Program will offer you a range of options so that you can manage your funding to a level that is comfortable for you. Our Coordinator will work alongside you to develop your Life Plan.

Once you have decided your vision for your life and how you would like to use your funding, we will provide as little or as much support as you would like. You are able to choose a fully managed option where we do all of the work for you, a self-managed option where you have full control over spending your funding, or tailor your own option to suit your personal requirements.
