REFOCUS Board and Staff endeavours to provide support to our community in the Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast and Gympie regions. We are focused in promoting early intervention services and in encouraging our staff to keep up-to-date with recent training developments and wellbeing.

Having now firmly established ourselves as the bearers of the highest standards in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander cultural practices, we continue to see new opportunities for growth- professionally, personally and business wise. Being professional cultural practitioners and case managers, our values and principles are the core to our practice. The compelling combination of our values and principles as reflected in our Strategic Plan, Relationships and Commitment to our business, place us in a strong position to seize these opportunities for creating further growth and development for the Service, Our Children, Our Families and the North Coast Community.
