Organisational Information

In May 1999 SeQual Association Incorporated was formed by parents, friends and professionals as a response to meet the growing unmet need of adults with multiple disabilities in the inner Brisbane area. SeQual started as a small response to the people who live at the Halwyn Centre, Red Hill and has since grown to support a number of individuals with complex and fragile needs in our local area.
For the first period of our life SeQual specialised in providing community access and recreation support to people who had complex needs and we have since grown to incorporate accommodation support into our practice and work.

Host Provider Model

SeQual believes that each person and their family should have the ability to control their own lives and determine the support that they require. Sequal aims to provide a flexible model where individuals can choose the level of support that they require. Individuals can change between model types or buy additional services if their needs change on a short term basis
