Welcome to FlexiChoice!

FlexiChoice is the new model of MDFSA (Mareeba District Flexi Support Association). Our not for profit organisation has a proud 11 year history of providing quality, innovative and truly flexible services across the Tablelands region of Far North Queensland.

Our vibrant and diverse team can assist individuals with disability, their carers and families to explore more opportunities for the future, identify goals, gain or further develop interests, skills and abilities. Most importantly, your individual plan remains flexible to fit your individual needs and choices in the future.

Our Vision:
An inclusive society that values the dreams, abilities and achievements of its diverse communities.

Host Provider Model

Individuals can choose the level of responsibility that they are confident and comfortable with, in the planning and management of their support package. You may choose to take most of the responsibility, share responsibilities with FlexiChoice, or you may prefer FlexiChoice to provide full assistance with the management and delivery of your support package.

FlexiChoice will work with you (and other people if you choose eg. carers or family members) to explore and identify your goals. We can assist to identify and negotiate support options, activities and opportunities available, to create and personalise your individual plan to match your individual needs.

FlexiChoice offers assistance with the planning, coordination and management of services and support, in consultation with you. A range of service sare available from FlexiChoice including the use of our large activity base. We can also arrange external or remote services due to our wide network of disability support services.

Combining of services can be negotiated as an individual agreement with you.

The quantity and provision of services and support will be
