Community Support Centre Innisfail

Community Support Centre Innisfail Inc (CSCI) manages the Innisfail Multi Service Hub, a purpose built facility funded by the Queensland Department of Communities.

The Innisfail Multi Services Hub has interview/counseling rooms and meeting/workshop rooms available for hire to community groups subject to availability and terms and conditions of use. For further information and rates please contact info@csci.org.au

For Human Service NGOs there are additional options available for permanent/regular users or rooms and co-location at the hub. Please contact julie@csci.org.au if you wish to explore this further.

Information & Referral Services.
The Community Support Centre began as an ‘Information and Advice’ Centre. While the service has evolved and developed since that time, it has maintained its role as a place where people can obtain information.

Our front office contains a store of information about local and regional services and our front-desk volunteers are trained to provide you with information and referrals to services that are appropriate to your needs.

The Centre produces a service directory for the Cassowary Coast which lists contact details for health and welfare services in the district.

Counselling Services
Counselling is available at the Community Support Centre, for adults, young people and school-aged children. The benefits from counselling include emotional support, assistance with problem-solving, planning or coping with change, enhanced self-awareness, self-esteem and increased ability to manage stress.

The Centre provides counselling to individuals, couples and families. Our counsellors are qualified professionals who engage in ongoing training to continuously develop their skills.

Family Support Program
The Centre’s Family Support Program provides a range of supports to families where parents/carers are having difficulty coping. A family support worker will help parents clarify the things that they would like to change. The focus is on those things that make it difficult for parents to give children the kind of nurturing and guidance they would like to offer them.

A family support worker may help families work towards goals such as managing children’s behaviour, shopping and cooking on a budget, developing household routines, or parenting during times of stress. A family support worker can be a link to access other supports that families may need, such as housing, emergency relief, legal advice, counselling, etc. They may also advocate on behalf of families with other such services. Our family support program also offers parenting courses and group programs throughout the year.

Child Sexual Assault Counselling Service
The Child Sexual Assault Counsellor provides services to support and empower children and young people who have experienced sexual assault and their families. The service includes: Counselling for children and young people between 6 to 18 years including outreach services. Immediate and ongoing support for families of children and young people who have experienced child sexual assault. Protective Behaviour Education for children/young people and their parents/ carers. Information and referral for clients, service providers and agencies.
