Community Access Respite Services (C.A.R.S.)
Community Access Respite Services (C.A.R.S.) has a proud history of enhancing the lives of people with disability by providing flexible, responsive and individualised support services.
It is often said that true innovation is born out of necessity – and for C.A.R.S. this could not ring more true. In 1994, a family on the north side of Brisbane was struggling to find an organisation that could provide much-needed support for their son living with disability. Not willing to sit idle, they rallied together with community members in their garage to discuss their unique challenges and devise a plan. With commitment and support from other families in the area, C.A.R.S. was born.
In October 2017, Multicap and C.A.R.S. came together. United by our shared values and vision for the future, this partnership launched an exciting future together.
Since then, the partnership has flourished. Based on Brisbane’s north side, our organisations have created an environment for our customers where interests are pursued, goals are achieved and life is lived to the fullest.
