NDIS


Centacare FNQ has been a registered NDIS service provider since 2018, and has been working in the Cairns community since 1981. In this time we have built connections in the Cairns community to support people with the services that best meet their needs.

Our skilled team recognise and value the uniqueness of you and your experience in life and we believe that in joining our expertise with yours that together we can use your plan to coordinate supports that reflect your needs.

We have a long history of working with people who have a psychosocial disability and people from diverse cultures.

Core Supports? Service Agreements? NDIA vs Plan Managed? Good thing our team are great communicators! We pride ourselves on finding creative ways to explain and involve each and every person we work within each and every process from start, to finish.

The services we provide under the NDIS include:

Support Coordination 

Support Coordination will assist you to build the skills you need to understand, implement and use your plan. A support coordinator will work with you to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase your capacity to:

  • Maintain relationships
  • Manage service delivery tasks
  • Live more independently, and
  • Be included in your community 
We will work alongside you to determine how your funds will be spent and to connect you with providers. We do this by helping you work out what is possible with your NDIS funds, building capacity to exercise choice and control and support you to navigate the NDIS marketplace and find providers that are the best option for you.


Resilience Coaching – Individual and Group 

Resilience Coaching is a form of personalised support that works specifically with people with a focus on enabling people to take charge of their life. Our practice places the person at the centre of decision-making around their own lives. 

Our Learn, Try, Stretch model invites you to learn new ways of living life, try something you haven’t tried before and stretch outside of your comfort zone.


Counselling and Therapeutic Supports

Our counselling service provides professional counselling in a supportive and collaborative environment where individuals of all ages, couples and families can discuss their problems and concerns. 

At Centacare FNQ, we help you work through difficult or painful emotional, behavioural and relationship concerns and can assist clients to clarify a situation, gain new perspectives and work towards change. Our counsellors are highly skilled practitioners in a variety of therapeutic methods.

We provide a confidential service and one of our friendly qualified counsellors can help you identify the most appropriate plan in relation to your counselling needs.
