Happy 21st Birthday to QLA!
QLA is 21 years old this year! Back in 1992 a small group of people with disabilities had a vision to create an organisation to provide the daily supports that they required to live a productive, purposeful and enriched life.
Under the invaluable guidance of the Management Committee, all users and family members of users, the organisation has developed and grown into a small, robust disability support service provider with clients from Brisbane to Kingaroy. We are proud of the quality of our home care employees and staff who continue to embody the values and philosophies of the organisation of social justice, personal choice for users, flexibility, dignity and respect.
Our belief is that we work ‘hand in hand’ with our clients to provide them with the lifestyle of their choice and empower them to attain their concept of a quality life. We work collaboratively with each individual to facilitate their daily living needs.
We are passionate about supporting our clients and our staff, enjoying the benefits of developing lifelong friendships along the way. We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and that, you too, will become a lifelong friend of our multicultural team.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
