Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up for a group activity?

An intake process needs to be completed prior to booking in for a group activity at Focal. This requires participants to have returned a signed service agreement, fee schedule, and complete new client intake forms.

 

To start the intake process, submit the enquiry form on this page and a staff member will make contact with you to begin intake.

How much support is provided at a group activity?

All Focal clients receiving individual support (one-on-one) can link in to a group activity with their support worker anytime.

 

All of our groups can cater for a support ratio of 1:1 as per individual requirements, otherwise group support is provided as 1:2 or 1:3 depending on the type of group. If you would like to know more, our friendly team can assist.

What are activity fees?

All of our group activities have a small fee to cover the cost of incidentals and consumables. This amount usually does not exceed $10 per activity (excluding school holiday activities).

 

All activity fees are communicated in advance through the group activity planner. All costs will be discussed with you before you agree to sign a service agreement.

What ages do your group activities cater for?

Our groups are suitable for people with disability of all ages. We have groups that cater for:

  • Children (5 – 12 years)
  • Young People (13 – 18 years)
  • Adults (19 – 40 years)
  • Adults (Over 40 years)

What locations do group activities run from?

Some of our groups are centre-based, others are community-based and some are a mixture of both.

 

You can join a group wherever it suits you best – groups run from our community hubs in Ipswich and Brisbane’s western suburbs or meet in the community depending on the activities planned.
