MACS is a not-for-profit organisation providing in home, night time support to people with physical disabilities living in the community. Our objective is to provide support to enable people with a disability to remain in the community or to return to community living.
The service is governed by people with disabilities.
Macs operates only within a defined area primarily in the northern suburbs of Brisbane.
The primary target group of the service are individuals under the age of 65 living in the community within MACS geographically defined area, (see map) who have a physical disability and require personal care assistance throughout the night and are able to direct and monitor the Attendants work.
MACS is funded by Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services (Disability Services), Queensland Community Care Services (QCCS), and the Federal Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA).
