“Multiple and complex needs” is a broad term used to describe people or families that might be experiencing a combination of multiple disabilities, high support needs, mental health concerns, or other issues. This term may be used to describe your situation if you are unable to get the support you need from a single service. For example, you may require services from specialists on top of your disability support or mental health support.
If you’re experiencing multiple and complex needs, you might need support from a number of professional services. Our staff have expertise in developing support plans that include external services like psychiatric services, specialist disability services, general practitioners, behaviour specialists, and acquired brain injury services.
Where we provide you with support, our staff will be matched with you based on skills and experience, to make sure you receive the highest quality support.
Flexible support, when and where you need it.
