Our History

Multicap was established in 1962 as a voluntary parent-based community organisation by five families who could not obtain suitable support for their children with multiple disabilities.

Starting off in a church hall once a week, the service became popular and the amount of children attending soon grew to thirteen, then to twenty-four and more. A fundraising group was formed to be able to cater for the increasing numbers. The organisation continues to expand.

Today, Multicap’s head office is at Eight Mile Plains and over 800 families, including several of these founding families, still access Multicap’s individual and group activities, respite, family support networks, opportunities, and programs at over 80 hubs across Queensland and Northern New South Wales

Our passion for every individual’s right to connect and realise the possibilities available to them, drives us to always believe there is a way. We create opportunity. We are champions of possibility. We inspire partnerships of support. Our door is always open.

Disability touches the lives of most people in some way, through experiences with our friends, family, at school, in the workplace, and in the community.

Together we are a positive circle of support… In all ways and always.
