Queensland disability service provider merger completes

The merger of two Queensland disability service providers has completed, creating growth opportunities and more services for people with disability in the Fraser Coast region.

Fraser Coast Family Networks (FCFN) has merged with Multicap to become part of Multicap’s expanded north coast region, maintaining a local office in Maryborough and head office located in Eight Mile Plains.

Merger plans commenced mid-last year, in an effort to ensure continuity of service to existing NDIS customers in the region.

Together, the organisation employs more than 2,100 people and brings together more than 85 years of proud disability service expertise.

Group Chief Executive Officer of Multicap, Joanne Jessop said only eight months on from our initial discussions, the successful merge strengthens Multicap’s commitment to enhancing quality of life of people with disability.

“The merged resources will provide efficiencies and create opportunities to broaden the scope of services available to people on the Fraser Coast,” said Joanne.

“Building on FCFN services and local connections to people with disability in the Fraser Coast region, Multicap provides a sustained strength to meet industry challenges and opportunities, such as NDIS funding and COVID-19.

“We are pleased to have warmly welcomed 55 staff from FCFN into the Multicap team on 25 February.”

FCFN staff transitioned to be employed by Multicap as part of the merge to ensure continuity of service delivery and support work.

Multicap is committed to providing opportunities and experiences to enrich the lives of people with disability in Maryborough and the surrounding region.

Multicap provides support to people with disability throughout Queensland, northern New South Wales and Melbourne and started from humble beginnings, similar to FCFN.
