Why

The recent Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability has found that an estimated 17,000 people with disabilities currently live in group homes around Australia.

The inquiry was told people used to be segregated away from the community in large institutions where they lived in conditions that were "harsh, if not barbaric". While many group homes were meant to act as a steppingstone to help people transition into the community, experts have said that these homes have effectively become "the end of the road".

The Sustainable Disability community concept has come about through listening to our clients and their families, loved ones, and carers and our plan to help them live their best life is driven by a core belief: everyone deserves an opportunity to be a valued contributing member of society regardless of their ability.
