Life Without Barriers

About Us

We are a leading social purpose organisation working in more than 440 communities across Australia. Our services currently support just over 14,000 people living in their own homes or in residential houses that we manage. We support children, young people and families, people with disability, older people and people with mental illness. We work with people who are homeless and refugees and asylum seekers. 

Our beginnings were simple but clear – create services where the decisions around the type of care or support being received are made by the people requesting it. Today, we are one of the largest providers of social services in Australia, with a reputation for supporting clients with complex needs and delivering in challenging and new environments. We work with individuals, their carers and others in the community to ensure the best care and support are developed for each individual’s needs. This includes working in partnership with the community, elders, government and private sector to improve the lives of the people we support.
