Multicap opens its doors to Tweed region community
MULTICAP is proud to have empowered more than 1200 people with disability and their families throughout its 56year history, says Tweed Heads regional manager Helen Carter.
“We continue to evolve in response to the needs of our customers with the launch of the Tweed Community Hub in Northern NSW,” she said.
“The Tweed Community Hub is a place where customers immediately feel at home.
“Our hubs are welcoming and inclusive, whether it be driving creative programs or supporting social engagement through bringing together like-minded people.
“This is a place of reprieve, skills development and support, and it will grow to reflect the specialised needs of our local community.”
Ms Carter said led by a dedicated and experienced team, staff at the hub were passionately involved in the local community.
“We understand that many things contribute to the fulfilment of our customers and we strive to go above and beyond in all aspects,” she said.
“We deliver support plans that highlight opportunities, not barriers. We develop creative and social programs that will contribute to customers’ enhanced enjoyment of life and make pathways between dreams and reality.”
Ms Carter said the organisation was at the beginning of an exciting time for customer-led disability services.
“With the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, we are looking at ways to offer our customers better inclusion, independence and recreational, social and learning outcomes,” she said.
“Multicap is championing this through going above and beyond.
“We are thinking outside of what’s been done before and we are fully prepared to support people to make informed decisions.
“This will help them to develop life skills and experience excitement, fun and relaxation.
“Through our dedication in meeting the needs of our customers, such as Liam and Sarina( pictured right and left), we have brought together a diverse and highly-skilled team at the Tweed Community Hub.”
Multicap’s Tweed-based hub is at Shop 1, 47 Greenway Drive, Tweed Heads South.
