Hartley Lifecare The Canberra-based organisation providing accommodation support and respite care for children, adults and their families in the ACT and region with physical and complex disabilities for
50 years. While many disabilities are present at birth they can happen unexpectedly to anybody at any stage of life. It could be you, a family member, a friend, neighbour or work colleague. While disabilities change lives forever they donít have to stop life or end the quality of life forever. With special, intensive, ongoing support, people with physical and complex disabilities can lead fulfilling lives. That is what Hartley Lifecare is all about.
Special Olympics Australia Through the power of sport, Special Olympics strives to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people especially those with an intellectual disability. People with an intellectual disability are often ridiculed, misunderstood, isolated or simply ignored. Yet, with the understanding and support of Special Olympics they discover the skills that allow them to improve their health, develop self-confidence and bring joy to themselves, their families and their community.
