Our disability and mental health services in Logan, Somerset, Nambour and the Gold Coast, support individuals to increase their independence and wellbeing. We work in partnership with clients and their families to provide tailored support.
Our services are for adults living with mental illness, intellectual disabilities and/or physical disabilities. We are an endorsed Queensland Government “Your Life Your Choice” Host Provider.

We offer both in-centre and at-home respite, with additional support, information and activities for carers at our Somerset service.

A landmark study led by LCC recently explored mental health supports in the Kingaroy region of southern Queensland. A peer worker (a person with a lived experience of mental health issues) interviewed more than 60 people for their views of what was working and what was lacking. With one in five Australians living with a mental illness (and this is higher in the regions) this ‘grassroots’ approach mapped the issues and pointed to areas that need attention.
