Who we are


At Xavier we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disabilities and health needs. We recently reverted back to the name of Xavier (previously InFocus Disability Services) which better reflects our heritage.

We work with families to help them access the support and services they require to best meet the unique needs of their child living with complex health and disability needs. We help children and their families to live the best lives possible, as a family. We provide health supports such as nursing and allied health services through to supporting children in play and in their community giving them the opportunity to just be kids.

Our goal is to deliver the highest quality support and services to families who really need it. Families who are caring for children with complex disabilities and health needs, that require very tailored care. Our team exclusively specialise in meeting these  complex needs and have decades of experience to draw upon. We work with families throughout the greater Brisbane region.

Xavier Spotlight

Practical Tips for improved Mental Health

In recognition of Queensland Mental Health Week we asked the Xavier team to share their tips on the small things that we can do every day to take care of our own mental health. We hope that some of these ideas might help our families who struggle to dedicate time to their own mental well-being.

Mental Health Awareness Part 2: Looking out for loved ones

Queensland Mental Health Week runs from 6-14th October and provides a timely reminder for Queenslanders to recognise the importance of mental health. In this article, from our health team, we will explore how loved ones can look out for each other because when you have the support of others we are all stronger. So what can we do when we see that a loved one is stressed and you are concerned?

Mental Health Awareness Part 1: Taking care of you

For parents and carers of children with complex needs it is so difficult to find the time to dedicate to your child, their siblings, family relationships, friendships, work…the list goes on. In this part one of two articles on mental health, we consider ways that you can be more aware of your own mental health and how to take steps for improvement.

Celebrating Speech Pathology Week

This Speech Pathology week (19-25 August 2018) we are celebrating our amazing “Speechies”! Speech Pathology week aims to promote the invaluable work that Speech Pathologists do to help over 1.1 million Australians including children. The theme of this year’s Speech Pathology week is “Communication access is communication for all!” which we think is very fitting for our kids...
