Independent Living

Huon Disability Network

Do you have a child who is interested in living independently?
Are you not in a hurry?
Do you like to live in the Huon?

We have formed a group of interested families, we have identified each needs and interests and are now talking to interested stakeholders to take this project further. This is the early stage of a longer process to develop housing for young people with a disability in the Huon.

You want to know more? Send us an email.


Operating in Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland, we have been a leader in disability services for 30 years.

We also offer support services to children in Out of Home Care who have complex needs.

We support people with disability to exercise choice, live with dignity and increase independence while:

  • Getting involved in their local community
  • Pursuing personal interests
  • Building relationships with others
  • Developing healthy lifestyles by being mentally and physically active
  • Maximising independence in household and daily activities such as shopping, preparing meals or paying bills.

We are committed to enriching people’s quality of life and supporting skill development.

We provide flexible, consistent and reliable support services that are responsive to the individual’s needs and express wishes.

For any enquiries please contact our Community Engagement and Intake team on 1800 066 066 or email


If you are eligible for the NDIS, our professional staff can work with you to provide support in your day-to-day life and with self-care, and household jobs. We can also work with you to assist you in building your independence. Anglicare’s services provide value for your money to assist you to make your NDIS plan go further.

We work with you to provide the supports that suit your needs. How we do this will look different for each person but may include support with:

  • Household jobs like cleaning the house or weeding the garden
  • Personal care needs such as getting out of bed, showering or other daily activities
  • Taking your medications
  • Planning and preparing meals, so you eat food you like, and that’s good for you

Li-Ve Tasmania

The Li-Ve Tasmania philosophy is one which places the person at the centre of our organisation. Within all of our service divisions we strive to maximise the quality of life enjoyed by every person. Li-Ve Tasmania offers a range of services tailored to meet the diverse and changing needs of people and their families. Li-Ve Tasmania continually seeks to not only ensure the health and wellbeing of people, but is also dedicated to ensure that each individual achieves their full potential. An inclusive environment engaging not only the person, but also family and friends are recognised as an integral aspect of person centered development. Li-Ve Tasmania currently has 80 people in nine properties and services located across the greater Hobart area. Our services include a combination of accommodation, day support in-home support and respite services. Each person prepares an annual Personal Plan, in conjunction with Support Staff and Advocates. Here they express their goals and aspirations for the coming 12 months. It is then the role of staff to assist them within the available resources. People are involved in a variety of day time activities. Many have employment with organisations such as Oak Enterprises and Plane Tree Studios whilst others have retired. Others may be participants in Community Access Services provided by this or other organisations.

Supported Independent Living is for anyone over 18 who wants to gain some independence, choice and control but who still wants the security of some support, should they need it. We take pride in finding the right group home for you, where you will live with like-minded people in a comfortable environment with your own private room and space to call your own. Our Supported Independent Living clients enjoy the chance to be an individual, to socialise with friends, gain employment or attend Community Access programs where they can learn new skills or develop hobbies. They have the choice, as adults, to control their own lives and this empowers them to “live life my way”.
