We'll help you enjoy being part of your community

Expand your horizons

Living regionally doesn't have to limit your options – we'll support you to achieve your goals through experiences that go beyond the everyday.

Make new friends

Spending time with friends warms the heart – with our support you can socialise more and build relationships, whether it's at one of our centres or out in the community.

Live your best life

Let's think past the obvious – our support services help you build your skills and capacity to make the most of every day.

Support that’s tailor made for you

Our services are about you – not us. That’s why we’re flexible and personalise our services to match your needs and choices. This gives you control to increase your capacity and independence.

Try new things in a supported environment

With our support, you can try new things. We’ll work with you to create a mix of supports that encourage and help you to:

  • socialise with your peers 
  • build relationships
  • increase your skills, capacity and confidence 
  • be part of the community
  • think ‘outside the box’ about the supports you want and need.

Depending on what works best for you, we might support you individually or you could join a group either at one of our centres or out in the community. 

We’re your biggest cheerleaders! We want to help you to be the best you can be. And we’ll be there to support you now and into the future, as your needs and goals change.

You’ll feel heard, valued and safe

Being matched with the right support people makes all the difference. We make sure you feel comfortable and get along well with your support team.

Our experienced staff take the time to listen to what you want to do, and work with you to create a mix of services focused on those experiences.

You’ll feel like one of the team

Your reliable and friendly LiveBetter team will keep in touch and involve you in coming up with creative and new ways to achieve what you want to.
