About Montrose

Montrose has a long history of providing services for people with a disability. In 1933, we commenced during the grip of the Poliomyelitis epidemic, which often left survivors with severe disabilities.

Today, Montrose Therapy & Respite Services provides supports to children and young adults with physical disabilities, neuromuscular conditions, developmental delay and autism. We provide Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Support Coordination and Social Work support, along with Short Stay Accommodation and a Lifestyle & Leisure service. Montrose is a vital presence in the homes, schools and communities of South East Queensland.

We are based in Brisbane with Centres across Queensland including  Brisbane South, Brisbane North, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Slacks Creek, Ipswich and Toowoomba.

We are a values based not-for-profit organisation with any surpluses invested back into providing services for children and families. Montrose is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider.

Our Mission

Supporting children and young people with a disability and their families to maximise their abilities, achieve their goals and live the lives they choose.

Our Values

Our Values Graphic

Welcoming

We are part of a broad community that cares for and respects the needs of others. We want you to feel at home at Montrose, whatever your background and whatever your challenges.

Empowering

We believe in making things possible, we dream big, and we enable the Montrose community to be happier, stronger and more confident.

Informed

We share our knowledge within our community. We go above and beyond to understand complexities and provide innovative solutions.

Invested

Your goals are our goals. We are committed to achieving outcomes. We are in this together and work as a team.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Montrose we work together to support our clients and their families to live the lives they choose. We actively foster a welcoming environment through understanding the diversity of our people to support them on

their individual journey. The team at Montrose understand we are part of a broader community that cares for and respects the needs of others.

All Montrose clients, their families and our workers are encouraged to develop a respectful curiosity about each other – who people are, what motivates and influences them so that they can best support each other to experience safety and belonging.

At Montrose inclusion looks like:

  • People feeling valued and respected.
  • Understanding that a one size fits all approach does not provide equity, so we will provide varying levels of support depending upon need to achieve greater fairness of outcomes for each individual.
  • Encouraging everyone to openly contribute their perspectives and utilise their unique talents for the continuous improvement of our organisation.

Charitable Purpose

Montrose relies on support from donations and grants to fund some vital areas of our work. Although the NDIS provides packages to pay for therapy sessions, it is generous donations that allow us to carry out refurbishments and fund much of our social work program.

We also step in when funding is not available or where therapy is urgently required. Read more here.

Working Together

Montrose is a member of Ability First Australia, one of the largest not for profit strategic alliances between 14 of Australia’s leading disability service providers.
