Our History

Community Living for the Disabled Incorporated was established in 1984 to provide long term accommodation and support for young adults who had reached a stage where their ‘real’ options had narrowed to either living at home with parents, inappropriate placement in limited support accommodation services, or inappropriate institutional placement.

The service at that time consisted of one house and two units, providing accommodation support for 5 adult individuals with varying levels of physical and intellectual capability.

From the outset the organisation has expanded its services with the addition of other houses and units, and in early 2009, the organisation underwent a name change to more closely reflect our core business, becoming disAbility Living Inc.

In 2011 the organisation moved into providing Transition and Respite Care for adults. We currently provide support to over 70 clients across 12 sites, employing more than 140 support staff.
