Our Story

We believe life is to be truly lived!

At Multicap we believe every person deserves to live life to the absolute fullest

It is our primary focus to provide people from all walks of life with every opportunity needed to thrive. We are dedicated to making this happen as a professional and caring disability service provider.

Established almost 60 years ago by five families for the purpose of caring for young children with high disability needs, Multicap has matured into an organisation with a broad service offering and one clear philosophy; we are here for our customers in all ways, always. 

Since 1962, Multicap has grown and evolved with our foundation families, we have diversified and matured alongside our customers because we have long realised the importance of partnering with them on their life’s journey. 

This partnership has resulted in the integration of transition from school programs and the facilitation of training and employment programs for people eager to jump into the workforce. We quickly discovered that not all businesses supported all kinds of employment; so we started our own employment service that would! Now we have three businesses that we run to facilitate employment support pathways for people with disability. 

A natural evolution was the provision of community centres called Community Hubs, and specially purposed SIL houses, or more accurately, bespoke homes for our customers’ individual circumstances. Multicap homes and Community Hubs often play host to milestone transitions and transformations. From facilitating a young person’s first move out of the family home to championing greater freedom later in life, we make extraordinary effort to ensure our homes – whether we lease, buy or build them – are tailored to incorporate individual and families’ unique needs through any phase in life. 

Our incredibly skilled and diverse organisation is made up of a team of more than 1,100 equally unique staff with one thing in common – we don’t believe the buck stops with provision of care and that many things contribute to a fulfilled life.

The Multicap team are all big believers in driving creative and social experiences that help our customers get more out of life. Whether this means going on incredible holidays, meeting likeminded people at social meet-ups, or even taking a day out of everyday life to ride a jetski or enjoy a pottery class. Multicap helps our customers to live their best possible life, whatever it may be. 

As we look to the future, our promise at Multicap is to continue to reflect the needs of the community through the services we offer. With each new home, social experience, activity, Community Hub, and job, Multicap remains an organisation that is here for our customers; all ways, always.

Multicap acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation, and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
