We provide supported independent living services mainly in the Moreton Bay and the Sunshine Coast regions. However, we may at times go outside these areas.

These services reduce the impact of isolation and vulnerability and assist in the maintenance of day-to-day supports, family relationships and/or informal support networks.

Our services are funded under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the Individualised Placement and Supports (Department of Child Safety).

Who we help

We support a range of people – including children, teenagers and adults – with a wide range needs, including:

  • physical disabilities
  • intellectual/developmental delays
  • mental health conditions.

We support people at home or out in the community who have daily challenges and need help managing a complex range of needs.

How to get help

We know that these choices can seem overwhelming if you’re new to the NDIS.

If you’d like to discuss your particular needs, please contact us for an initial discussion.
