The QCSS Community Supports Program provides support for people under 65 years of age (and under 50 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people).
Our services are tailored to your unique circumstance and preferences. We work with you to support you to maintain and build independence and community participation, ensuring that choice and control are optimised.
If you have a condition that affects your ability to complete activities of daily living and you require support to enhance your well-being and to remain living independently in your community, then you may be eligible for support.
The program can support you to identify your needs and goals to live independently, participate
actively in your community, and provide practical supports to help you achieve this.

The Care Coordination model aims to provide evidence based care coordination to adults living with chronic disease and psychosocial needs, by providing a holistic approach to their health, social and community support needs. The Care Coordination Service receives referrals from General Practices. The service will:
• Build effective relationships and assist communication between particpants and General Practitioners to better health outcomes.
• Conduct comprehensive psychosocial needs assessments to set client centred goals to improve well-being, disease self-management and health.
• Facilitate and coordinate case conferencing with primary care and other service providers, to improve supports and reduce fragmentation that can occur between sectors.
• Adopt community development principles, linking participants to appropriate services and building wrap around supports tailored to the person’s individual needs.

[Volunteering with Footprints was] fantastic – I am so glad I did it and could be a part of it. The support was always there and staff were very approachable, on hand and checked in with me after every shift. Training was good and helped me to understand the kind of clients Footprints sees and what we could encounter. The coverage of emotional as well as physical health in training was great – I had never encountered that before.
