From knowledge to practice
Specialist training, development and consultancy for the human services sector
Operating since 2001, Encompass Family and Community is a private, Australian-owned company employing senior consultants who have in-depth knowledge and expert skills in human services. Delivering training, development and specialist consultancy projects locally, regionally and nationally, our home base is in Brisbane, Queensland.
