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 open first Community Therapy Clinic at Springfield Lakes

In late 2018, we opened our first community therapy clinic at Springfield Lakes. The clinic aims to make life a little bit easier for families in the Brisbane West and Ipswich areas who require occupational therapy, physiotherapy or speech pathology for their child. 

 

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.
