Muscular Dystrophy Queensland (MDQ) is the only Queensland organisation dedicated to people who live with muscular dystrophy and similar conditions and their families, throughout all of their lives.
As we are also a small, specialist organisation which relies on the wonderful financial support of our donors, supporters and other stakeholders, we are able to provide some free services to our clients. We also welcome customers who wish to employ us for services under their NDIS Plan or from any other source of funding.
Our free information and support services and NDIS related, chargeable services are explained below. If you have any questions about anything you have read, do not hesitate to contact us.
We offer several services at no cost to our clients. These services are funded by our generous donors, private trusts and foundations, government project funding and MDQ’s fundraising and events programs.
