As a leading provider of a diverse range of high-quality disability services, Multicap is committed to enhancing the lives of people with disability, including those who have high and complex support needs.
What is Multicap's Critical Support Services?
Multicap’s Critical Support Services provide specialised wrap-around service solutions designed to provide high intensity crisis intervention, discharge, transition, and stabilisation supports to individuals with complex support needs in the aim of developing evidence based service responses that can be replicated and delivered safely and sustainably. Multicap recognises that transition supports may be required for people in situations such as the following:
- a breakdown in family or existing supports
- discharge from hospital with no suitable accommodation available
- in forensic settings and requiring a staged re-entry to community
- residing in a mental health facility without a clinical need
- where there is a breakdown of service provision and subsequent relinquishment or risk of homelessness for a person
