Regional Outreach - Muscular Dystrophy Queensland

Regional Outreach

We strive to improve the availability of our services for people who live outside of Queensland’s south east corner. With thanks to our generous donors and a small number of private trusts and foundations, we are able to run several regional outreach trips each year.

Allied Health Programs in South East Queensland

People living in Greater Brisbane, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Toowoomba are able to access regular allied health services, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and allied health assistance. Talk to us today about accessing these services. 

Statewide Programs

The majority of our programs can be accessed no matter where you live in Queensland. Services available under the NDIS model include Support Coordination and Plan Management. Our charitable services, including our infoline and equipment loans can be accessed from anywhere in state.

Outside the South East Corner

We visit regional centres, offering services and support on a consultative basis and can continue to offer services via telehealth at other times. We also link in with local providers working with members of our community. This might include medical or allied health services, disability service providers, educational facilities and other service providers.

Regional visits may include:

  • Meetings with families to discuss specific challenges and provide information and advice.
  • Dinners or other “meet and greet” events where you can connect with other community members and perhaps form supportive friendships. 
  • Information about and access to our free programs.
  • Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy consultations.

If you are from a regional centre and you wish to make enquiries about becoming a community member of Muscular Dystrophy Queensland and accessing our services please contact us.
