Hartley Lifecare is a Canberra-based organisation that has provided accommodation support and respite care for children, adults and their families in the ACT and region with physical and complex disabilities for more than 50 years.

Many disabilities are present at birth, however 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 don’t 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. For further details click here.

We receive partial funding for some programs from the ACT Government through Disability ACT.
