MADEC is a non-profit organisation that provides a range of care and support services for youth and people with disability in Mackay community.The mid 1990s provided an opportunity for MADEC to develop its own identity as an independent community business. Through initiatives driven by past and present Directors and CEOs, MADEC became a Registered Training Organisation and a Disability Support Provider while maintaining the resource centre and professional development activities. In 2003, these services further expanded into youth support programs.
In recent years, MADEC has forged healthy relationships with the education and training sectors, community groups, disability and youth services and various government departments.These partnerships strengthen their community's ability to access new projects and funding, which promotes MADEC as a preferred organisation of excellence in project management, training, disability, youth participation and resources.
Now, with over 40 years history of serving their community, MADEC is proud to be a successful local community business with established partnerships, reaching beyond its traditions and introducing innovative programs to meet the needs of the community.
