Welcome to QSSS

QSSS Services

In Home and Personalised Supports

Queensland Support Services & Solutions offers high quality personal support and services for Clients with physical disabilities who receive funding to live and participate within the community.

Supports can include personal care, domestic assistance, and community access.

This will involve working directly with the Client and/or the Client’s family/representative in assessing what support or services are required and how they will be delivered.

QSSS promotes self-determination, choice and control for Clients who provide direction to staff in their own home or community; Clients have total control over their rosters. QSSS build a team of supports around the Client by recruiting specifically for each person based on their individual ‘checklist’; the Client always has the last say about who is employed to support them.

QSSS provides flexible, transparent and accountable services to the Clients for whom we do “nothing about them, without them.”

QSSS is an approved Provider for CoS, DVA, Aged Care and insurance companies; we can also support those who are self-funded.

QSSS is an approved NDIS Service Provider

NDIS funding

The NDIS has now fully rolled out throughout Queensland. QSSS is a registered Service Provider under the NDIS and has already provided supports to people with physical disabilities throughout Queensland for a number of years now.
NDIS participants have choice and control over their disability supports, including being able to choose what supports they will have, and how they are delivered and managed – which fits in perfectly with the QSSS model of supports.
If you transitioned from other funded disability services you will have automatically approved for the NDIS. If you have never received or been approved for supports, you can register for the NDIS at any time.
For more information or to chat about us or your options, please contact our Coordination Manager, Vanessa Jamieson, on 0455 502 900 or refer to

QSSS is based in Brisbane, with divisions based on the Sunshine Coast and Northern Qld, however depending on the person’s (or their family’s) level of capacity to self-determine and their computer skills, QSSS can support anyone, anywhere in Queensland.

We are more than happy to hear from anyone regarding supports or information about people with physical disabilities in Queensland; we can either directly assist you or point you in the right direction.

Aged Discrimination: people over 65 lack of entitlement to NDIS
All Australians should have access to disability funding but this sadly is no longer the case for people aged 65 years or older who apply for the NDIS.

This is discrimination in its most simplest form. For those of you who receive supports, try to imagine not receiving any? Try feeling ‘lucky’ that you weren’t sent to an Aged Care facility because ‘someone’ decided that your disability was too great or because you happened to end up in Hospital 3 times in one year.

It’s wrong and heartbreaking. We believe the 3 levels of discrimination with this is:
1. People over 65 y/o don’t qualify for disability funding from the NDIS This is discrimination by age
2. People who turned 65 even one day before the NDIS rolled out in their area did not qualify for the NDIS but if they turned 65 even one day after receiving NDIS funding, they can remain on the NDIS for (presumably) the rest of their lives. This is discrimination plus a huge anomaly in the system!
3. Many people over 65 (and some under 65) are still resident or being placed in Aged Care facilities, despite the pre-NDIS promises stating that the NDIS would get and keep people with disabilities out of aged care facilities and other institutions. This is not only discrimination because it still happens, but a huge insult to people who could potentially easily be supported in the community!
Please help to see this changed and stand up against the current discrimination of people over 65 who are not “qualified” to receive NDIS funding, then we strongly recommend you sign Petition EN1113 . To sign this petition please click here.
