Spiral services funded by QCCS

Spiral offers community based services through QCCS (Queensland Community Care Services) funding to support participants to access Spiral workshops as well as other community based classes.

Community based services are:

  • group environment activities (centre based funding), including excursions, tours and classes
  • social support funding enables support for participants to carry out daily living activities such as getting to appointments, shopping and accessing community based programs

As well as developing core skills, these services provide opportunities to build and enable community connections and social inclusion.

Service costs

QCCS funded supports include social support, centre-based and in-house services, which generally have a contribution fee of $20.

Costs vary for those participating in workshops under centre-based services. Read more about Spiral workshops and costs. For other centre-based services, please contact Spiral.
