Sunshine Coast Independent Living Service provides a range of flexible tailored services to people with a disability to promote their independence.
We support our customers to develop independence in the community and the confidence and resilience to adjust to the changes of everyday life.
Our services are uniquely designed to the individual requirements of every customer. Just as no two people are the same, we believe in making our services the best fit for our customers rather than making them fit into pre-existing ‘boxes’.
