Support Coordination & Occupational Therapy

Life is complex. We know that. Can we help?

AQA takes a capacity building approach to Support Coordination, Occupational Therapy and other allied health services. Our aim is always to enhance your ability to live life as you want to. 


Our engagement process is led by Mark Hanson, an occupational therapist who lives with a spinal cord injury. Mark says he can almost always respond to an inquiry within 48 hours.
